WP Shield Security Pro – Release 7.3

Shield Security Pro Logo

This brand new release of Shield Security Pro brings more advanced rules for detecting and blocking bad bots on your site.

You’ll be able to set exactly how Shield will react to behaviour that could be considered suspicious. We’ve provided 7 rules which reflect behaviours that bad bots exhibit and when they’re repeated often enough, point to a bad bot on your site.

We’ve outlined these new rules in our Bot Signals and Bot MouseTrap
articles
.

In summary, however, the rules can’t be taken alone as indicators of bad bots because sometimes legitimate users perform the same actions.

But, bad bots will often repeat these actions (as will users in some cases) and it’s through repeating these actions that we can gain a sense that the visitor is likely a bot and is there for no good.

Bot Signals: Free vs Pro Shield Security

In this particular release all the options are of course available for Shield Pro customers. However, we’ve provided one of these options for our free clients.

The particular option for free users is catching failed logins. This activity was previously monitored by Shield before 7.3 but we hadn’t provided a configuration option for it. Now it’s there, along with all the other rules.

This new set of features is just one of the examples of the huge list of extra features that come with your Pro upgrade. Not only do get the satisfaction of supporting the ongoing develop of Shield Security, but you get all the exclusive features and direct access to our support team.

We’ve kept this release announcements short and sweet because we’ve covered the major upgrade feature in detail, in other articles.

Fantastic Plugin with great support

I’ve used this plugin on many sites for some time now. It’s fantastic. Not only has it helped keep out any security threats, it’s a great way to check the audit trail of what’s been going on on our sites. It’s super configurable too. The support is great as well.…
