The Cloud Firewall is a dynamic, continuously changing database of bad IP addresses updated twice daily.

It contains roughly 600 million IPs that are known for distributing malware, performing brute force attacks on sites and doing other "bad" activities. The database is created by analyzing log files of millions of sites.

By using the cloud firewall, you will be one step ahead of the bad guys. They won't be able to login to your site or access it at all (if you enable that option).

The local firewall protects your login from brute force attacks. Anybody who fails to log in several times in a given period will be banned.

  • Ban 600 million bad IPs collected from millions of attacked sites.
  • The list auto-updates, no need for any maintenance or manual work
  • Protect login form from brute-force attacks.
  • Visitors who fail to login multiple times in a given timeframe get banned
  • Country blocking - block traffic from countries you do not want traffic from.
  • Secret access link is emailed during setup in case you lock yourself out.
  • Protect yourself against blacklisted spammers.

Country Blocking

Block traffic from any country you do not want traffic from.

If you see a lot of unwanted traffic from a specific country you can ban that country from visiting your website.

This can help prevent unwanted traffic, hack attempts and reduce server resources.

  • Easy to choose countries to block from a dropdown list.
  • See which countries your traffic comes from and block unwanted visitors.
  • List downloads automatically and is updated every month.

Login Form Protection

Some attackers use brute force attacks, simply trying a lot of login and password combinations trying to get in.

Protect your login form from repeated failed login attempts. If a user fails to enter a proper username and password combination too many times, they will get banned for a short period of time.

You can set the number of failed attempts by a single IP before being banned, as well as for how long they are banned.

Block multiple failed login attempts

p.s. You can help yourself a lot by using difficult unique passwords and use a secure password management application instead of reusing the same simple password. We can recommend 1Password by Agilebits. 

Warning on multiple mailed login attempts

Rename your login URL

Hackers know the default login URL to your website and will attempt to log in that way. In Security Ninja you can rename the default /wp-admin and /wp-login.php

Change login URL


How to prevent WordPress hackers?

A WordPress firewall can help protect against hackers. A firewall will identify malicious attempts from hackers to gain access and block them.

Another method is to regularly update a blacklist of bad IPs to block access for the many known automated bots reported by the community.

Installing a security plugin is recommended to keep your WordPress website secure.

How to stop non-stop login attempts on a WP site?

If your website is picked up by scanners and subsequently attacked with repeated login attempts you have several options. You can install a security plugin that automatically bans IPs after a few repeated failed logins.

Another option is to use community-powered lists of bad IPs. Many lists are updated continuously and can reduce the impact on your server significantly.

Changing the login page to a secret URL can also help reduce the impact on your WordPress website.

What does DDoS stand for?

DDoS stands for Distributed denial-of-service. It is a method where attackers can overwhelm a server with thousands or millions of simultaneous visitors. DDoS attacks are usually made by someone with control over a large network of remotely controlled computers and websites. Many websites that are infected with malicious code are often used as unwilling robots that help attack other websites.

How To Prevent Or Stop DDoS Attacks

A large enough DDoS attack can take down or disrupt basically any website. You can help reduce the impact by having an experienced and prepared WebHost and by installing security plugins that block identified malicious traffic.

What is a firewall?

A firewall is a piece of software that intercepts visits to your website and filters out suspicious requests or attempts to hack your website. The firewall needs to be sophisticated enough to block dangerous visitors but allow regular users full access.
