How does WP Cerber Security protect websites?

By default, WordPress allows unlimited login attempts through the login form, XML-RPC or by sending special cookies. This allows passwords to be cracked with relative ease via a brute-force attack.

The plugin blocks intruders by IP or subnet from making further attempts after a specified limit on retries is reached, making brute force attacks or distributed brute force attacks from botnets impossible.

With the plugin, you can create a Black IP Access List and White IP Access List to restrict logins from a particular IP address, subnet or IP range.

Moreover, you can create your Custom login page and forget about automated attacks, which require constant attention and consumes significant server resources. If an attacker tries to access wp-login.php, they get a 404 Error response and, optionally, are locked out for a configured period of time.

WP Cerber Security tracks time, IP addresses and usernames for successful and failed login attempts, logins, logouts, password changes, blocked IPs and actions taken by itself.

You can hide WordPress dashboard (/wp-admin/) when a user isn’t logged in. If the user isn’t logged in and they attempt to access the dashboard by requesting /wp-admin/, the plugin returns a 404 Error page.

A massive botnet brute force attack like CVE-2018-6389? That’s no longer a problem. The plugin automatically activates Citadel mode after several unsuccessful login attempts and prevent your site from making further attempts to break into with any username.

What does “Cerber” mean?

Cerber is derived from the name Cerberus. In Greek and Roman mythology, Cerberus is a multi-headed dog with a serpent’s tail, a mane of snakes, and a lion’s claws. Nobody can bypass this angry dog. Now you can order WP Cerber to guard the entrance to your site too.
