Jeff and I are joined by the lead developer of iThemes Security, Chris Wiegman. After helping us dissect the news of the week, he tells the story of how he got involved with WordPress. We learn about the circumstances that lead to the creation of iThemes Security and how he almost sold the plugin to a different company. He explains how the Brute Force Login Protection feature added to the latest version of iThemes Security works and the difference between local and network wide protection. Last but not least, we explore the idea of how it could turn into the Jetpack of WordPress Security plugins.
