DMC Firewall Core also includes a number of 'Bad Bots' that get banned from accessing your website, preventing your website from being taken down.
You can also:
* Perform a Health Check on your website and server
* Easily take a backup from within the control panel area (requires Akeeba Backup)
* Receive 'break-down' emails listing what DMC Firewall has banned over a set period of time
Before the content of your website is output to the visitors browser, this plugin scans through the HTML looking for any 'bad content' (cialis, viagra, payday loans etc). If any bad content is found, an email is sent to the web-master informing them of the page that the bad content was found on so they can take appropriate action where necessary.
Attacks are logged and once you know where they come from, it is a simple task to log into cPanel and block an IP or even a range of IPs - usually from countries where your only visitors are bots and hackers.
Support is superb and helpful so if you have any problems leave a message you'll get every assistance. This extension does the business superbly and unobtrusively.
In my opinion it should be used with every serious Joomla website. Highly recommended!
I have been using Login Failed Log and getting 200+ hack reports a day on a couple of the domains I manage. Since installing DMC Firewall that has dropped to zero reports.
There are some minor issues with an htacess error being reported on some domains but that might be something in the actual htacess file and not related to DMC Firewall.
For v1.1 I would give this component a 5/5
