After trying the powerful Defender Pro plugin I was sold that I needed to have the entire WPMU DEV suite of plugins. This not only saved me money in trying to use a patchwork of plugins but it increased my sites functionality. At each step of the way, the support staff was responsive and patient and skillful.

WPMU subscription is worth every penny - not only do you get all of the great plugins (Defender, Hummingbird and Smush are my faves) but you also get high level technical assistance with ANY Wordpress problem. Their live chat service is fantastic and has helped me through many issues.

There's no words to describe the service and products these folks provide. Top notch all around. I switched over all my clients websites to their suite of products a couple months back and I couldn't be happier. Cheers!

Amazing team standing behind solid products. I have been working with the team at WPMU DEV for a few years now and they only get better. They really care about their product and customers. Support is fantastic and they have some of the most powerful, and helpful, WordPress plug-ins on the market.

Frequently Asked Questions

WPMU DEV’s expert support can restore and clean up your site after it’s been hacked for free. If you have a backup, we’ll minimize your downtime by activating the most recent clean version of your site. Our experts will then scan your site with Defender to find and fix known vulnerabilities, permanently remove the malicious code, and set up this firewall of cyber muscle.

You indeed can! Not that we think you’ll need to ;). You may use other security  plugins along with Defender. Just make sure the same features are not enabled in both plugins at the same time.

Hackers and bot attacks are not the only threat to your site. No matter what security plugin or service you use, always be prepared with a secure backup stored in a safe location away from your live site. Security does not protect from hosting outages, server errors, and accidentally lost or damaged data. We recommend Snapshot. Defender, along with scheduled managed backups is the best way to keep your site safe.
