WordPress Firewall and Brute Force Protection

HeatShield's WordPress plugin offers two core security features: a Web Application Firewall (WAF) and login brute force protection.

WordPress Firewall

HeatShield protects WordPress with a Web Application Firewall (WAF) that analyzes the content of requests in order to block malicious requests before they damage or compromise your website.

Our advanced WAF design enables WordPress to directly leverage the full power of ModSecurity.

Brute Force Login Protection

HeatShield tracks failed and successful logins to WordPress' wp-login.php in order to detect brute force login attempts where attackers guess passwords. After multiple failed login attempts, the attacker's IP address is automatically blocked.

HeatShield maintains an audit log of successful logins so you can be certain nobody has logged into WordPress except you.
