    Hi Edward,

    I’m wondering if BPS Pro can protect us against zero-day vulnerabilities discovered in plugins.

    One of your competitors (W…fenc…) has a strong marketing argument in the fact that it provides real-time firewall rule updates to protect the website of its paying customers against new vulnerabilities (whereas free customers have to wait 30 days to get access to these new rules).

    So I have a few questions:

    1. As a WP security professional, do you get informed in near real time of such vulnerabilities?
    2. Can you usually quickly create new firewall rules to protect the website of your customers until the plugin releases an update?
    3. As for ordinary vulnerabilites, is it safe to assume that a serious company will email paid customers?
    4. What about free plugins from the WP repository? Are we supposed to check the changelog each and every time a plugin got an update released?

    Overall, I’m open to any best practice that you might advise me to follow.

    Best,

    Laurent

    Without boring you with extensive technical details I’ll leave you with this BPS Pro track record statement:

    BulletProof Security Pro has an amazing track record. BPS Pro has been publicly available for 9+ years and is installed on over 50,000 websites worldwide. Not a single one of those 50,000+ websites in 9+ years has been hacked (This track record does not include: control panel, FTP or server cracks/hacks or installing Nulled plugins or themes that contain hacker code). Sound too good to be true? Click to see what people are saying in WordPress.org Reviews.

    This is general info that might be helpful to you:
    The BPS Pro Plugin Firewall protects all plugins.  It is literally what that name says it is – A Firewall for your WordPress /plugins/ folder that protects all plugin files.  So there is no need to add anything or do anything additional to the Plugin Firewall on an ongoing basis – it is always On as long as you have it turned On/Activated.

    I hope my reply did not appear to be rude or disinterested.  I work 15 hour days so I am always in “answer quick and move on” mode.  😉  BPS and BPS Pro are only some of the things I work on during those 15 hour days.  Got a lot of irons in the fire so I cannot afford to waste time if I can avoid that.

    15 hours a day 7 days a week? You’re incredible…

    I had already read your very enviable track record but I assumed that BPS can’t have the answer to all future vulnerabilities.

    But you seem very confident so I might have to change my mind and just say to myself that I am in really good hands (which I already knew by the way). 😀

    I do monitor what is happening daily with plugin vulnerabilities and other things/trends that hackers and spammers are doing.  If something additional is needed in BPS to protect against new vulnerabilities/threats then I would add that.  Luckily I came up with future-proof ideas/features in BPS Pro.  BPS Pro has far exceeded my expectations.

    Thanks for clarifying and keep up the good work. 😉
