As a newcomer to the Wordpress world, you have heard and read a lot about the uncertainties of CMS - like me. When I discovered WP Cerber Security, I thought to myself, try it out - you can then delete it again. Far from it! A really ingenious tool! This relieves the admin and the CEO of worries and lets you sleep better, because WP Cerber Security never sleeps.

My experience with Cerber has been excellent, not perfect. It blocks a lot of bad guys/gals. It is simple and free!!!! Yet, the scan tool needs some work. After my site was hacked and malicious code was injected Cerber helped me block the intruder and detected the code then just when it was going to show me where the scan data wouldn't show me where it was located. If they clean up the scan and quarantine tools this is an amazing plugin...I gave it 5 stars despite that issue because it is just that great of a plugin...

Cerber Security Plugin is exceptionally proactive in denying malicious request. The firewall is great. The hardening features to protect admin scripts and disable php in uploads have really rescued my website from being injected with malicious codes severally. I no more have to deal with admin-Login because the admin login page have been redirected - thanks to the redirection Admin Login feature . The plugin is super easy to use, light weight but super powerful. On 3 occasions, cerber security automatically tuned my website to citadel mode because of an heavy brute force attack. Initially, I was using cerber security with another security plugin but an incidence that occurred last week made me go all in with cerber. Looking at the live traffic and activity, we had over 250 malicious request within 20 minutes but Cerber denied ALL the request. Looking at the second plugin dashboard, some request was accepted and some denied, but because I was using cerber, the accepted request was denied by cerber. All of this with the free package. I can’t help but remain thankful to the Cerber team and I intend to immediately subscribed to the paid plan, so as to be even more covered.

My website was infected with some kind or backdoor viruses and the attacker used to send out a lot of emails, My hosting couldn't help me and i started searching for security plugins and found many but none of them could actually work and most were expensive so i finally stumble upon WP Cerber which was free and it started working as soon as i activated it.
FIrstly it started blocking all the requests to those infected PHP files that the attacker added to my wordpress folders and then it automatically blocked the attacker after his multiple attempts, It also showed me where those infected files were and i was able to remove them.
This is the most easy to use plugin and it does what it says.

I have been trying to find a security plugin to protect and defend my WordPress site. I also wanted one that is not complicated and easy to set up. I came across WP Cerber Security by doing some extensive research online. It was very easy to set up and it started working immediately. It was eye-opening seeing how many intruders were trying to get into my site. I also have been looking for a simple way to add ips to a blacklist and WP Cerber Security has this feature. If you have a Wordpress site, you really need to protect it. Why put all that hard work into your site only to have hackers mess with it. WP Cerber offers so many great security features. It has a traffic inspector, scans the integrity of your site, and also a solid antispam solution. Plus there are many more great features. Wp Cerber Security gets a thumbs up from me.

We have been using WP Cerber at my full-time job on our website. I am in the security team so I get the weekly reports. They seem to be nice and full-featured. We are not permitted to disclose that company name.
I liked the product so much that I am in the process of launching my own small business to sell firearms and accessories and decided that I wanted to get the plug-in to protect my WordPress website also.
I like the idea of being able to block IP ranges, and subnets, also the ability to scan for malware. Although it would be really nice to be able to upload a CSV or JSON file to the blacklists as I intend to block various countries to cut down on the noise.
Outside of that, I have no issues with the software and plan to but the premium version.

I'm amazed to see how many attempts to penetrate my website Cerber detects and defeats. I believe it's a must-have security solution for any public website. Although, there are some rare false positives the overall performance is great. It's easy to install and gives me tons of user activity insights. Kudos for developers!

We run several e-commerce, news, and business sites and we install WP Cerber Security on all of them! It has become our go-to for security on WordPress! It's easy to use and you can see what's going on with your site at a glance and take appropriate action.
We can block spammers and hackers and observe probes for vulnerable code. This is an invaluable tool for any online business!

I installed Gerber on a website a couple of months ago when I started having trouble with attempted log ins and attempted malicious codes. I had used Wordfence a couple of years ago but had to uninstall it because of some problems including being locked out even though I was whitelisted. I am very happy with Gerber Security. It is easy to use and I love the features. I mainly use the activity and blacklisting IPs. Following activity has helped me with adding more security features and blacklisting IPs (500 so far) has kept the bad guys at bay. The malicious attempts that usually had been over 200 per day have slowed to 5-10 per day and I am seriously looking at upgrading my Gerber as i want to block countries now. Thank you Gerber you have given me peace and website security!

Without a doubt the best security plugin for wordpress that I have tried. You can see how it blocks suspicious activities in real time. It tells you where there may be infected files to clean, which it does to restore the originals in the paid version. It is very easy and fast to use and I have not noticed that the web slows down as I notice with other plugins.

I only used free version, but was impressed how detailed information i get about vulnerable activities. I'm looking to use pro version on one website which didn't had this plugin before and now I suspect it to be infected. Hope to clean up it website with additional tools in pro version. Until now I'm more than happy with this tool. Some of my colleagues who worked in cyber security recommended me this plugin. I'd recommend to everyone else.
