Current version: 1.7.1
Optional Remote Monitoring service (1 week trial for only € 1.25).
Also available as a Business Edition with executive configuration options, see documentation.
A plug-in that continuously monitors your Joomla! install and analyses whether critical user account details have been changed or directories and files have either been modified, added or are not part of a standard Joomla! install. It therefore provides an additional line of defense against website hacking attempts. The plug-in slows down repeated back-end log-in attempts to make brute force attacks frustratingly ineffective.
The plug-in does NOT prevent hacking attempts and cannot guarantee that your website will never be hacked, but it counteracts certain unusual activities and - most importantly - notifies the site administrator(s) of these activities, thus making sure that hack attempts will not go unnoticed and providing more specific information for the website administrator(s) to remediate these.
Install or upgrade via Joomla! backend.
