How does 6Scan differ from other WordPress security plugins?
* Most of these other plugins are based on a ruleset which recognizes and blocks certain malware and phishing attacks. This is effective for some common attacks, but fails to detect or prevent modifications in logic which may allow penetration of your site. Get a blanket of website security protection around your site with 6Scan.

Upcoming Features now in Beta Version:
* Suspicious Traffic Graphs: See a visualization over time of exactly how many hackers are attempting to exploit security vulnerabilities on your site and gain unauthorized access. For example, we will show you bots, automated hacking tools, security audit software, etc. – anything filtered by our WAF (Web Application Firewall) or by one of the security vulnerabilities you have fixed. You can also see how much of your traffic is not malicious.
* Secure Login: A plethora of options you can use to protect against login attacks (such as dictionary and brute force attacks). Lock would-be attackers out after a number of unsuccessful login attempts, receive email notifications when someone is trying to hack your site, and much more!
* Automatic Secured Backup: 6Scan can back up your entire site and database. If anything should ever go wrong – whether it’s a security problem or just a mistake you made – you can easily download a backup and undo the change. You don’t even need an antivirus or antimalware product! Backups are encrypted on-the-fly and stored on our secure servers so nobody can access them but you.

Let 6Scan handle the security of your WordPress site, so you can worry about what really matters to you – your content. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via email at [email protected].
