Jetpack Protect


Jetpack Protect is a free security plugin for WordPress that scans your site and warns you about vulnerabilities, keeping your site one step ahead of security threats and malware.

What does Jetpack Protect check for?

Jetpack Protect scans your site on a daily basis and warns you about:

  • The version of WordPress installed, and any associated vulnerabilities
  • What plugins are installed and any related vulnerabilities
  • What themes are installed and any associated vulnerabilities

Over 25,000 registered malware and vulnerabilities in our database

WordPress security is something that evolves over time. Jetpack Protect leverages the extensive database of WPScan, an Automattic brand. All vulnerabilities and malwares are entered into our database by dedicated WordPress security professionals and updated constantly as new information becomes available.

Fácil de montar y usar

There’s nothing to configure – the setup process is as easy as:
1. Install and activate the plugin
2. Set up it with one click.

Después de activar el plugin, Jetpack Protect ejecutará exploraciones automáticas a diario de malware en tu sitio de WordPress y lo actualizará sobre las vulnerabilidades asociadas con los plugins, temas y el núcleo de WordPress instalados.


¡Esto es solo el principio!

¿Cómo potencia Jetpack Protect la seguridad de tu sitio de WordPress?

Protect is a free WordPress security and malware scanner plugin that scans your site and lets you know possible malware and security threats on your installed plugins, themes, and core files.

¿Para que este plugin funcione necesita el plugin Jetpack?

Jetpack Protect does not require the Jetpack plugin to run and secure your site.

¿Qué diferencia hay entre los plugins Jetpack Protect, Jetpack Scan y WPScan?

Jetpack Protect and Scan do not have any limit on the number of plugins and themes you can scan. WPScan has a daily cap based on your API usage.

Por ahora, en Jetpack Protect, puedes rastrear los resultados de tu exploración solo a través del escritorio del plugin. Jetpack Scan y WPScan tienen avisos adicionales como correo electrónico.

Jetpack Protect ejecuta exploraciones automáticas a diario. Jetpack Scan y WPScan brindan opciones de exploración bajo demanda además de las exploraciones automáticas.

Jetpack Scan tiene solucionadores de un solo clic para la mayoría de las vulnerabilidades. Protect no tiene reparadores en este momento, pero proporciona guías de «cómo corregir» para que puedas corregir las vulnerabilidades manualmente.

Jetpack Protect y WPScans son plugins independientes que no necesitan plugins adicionales para ejecutarse, mientras que Jetpack Scan necesita el plugin Jetpack para funcionar.

Jetpack Protect is a free plugin, and WPScan has free and paid options. On the other hand, Jetpack Scan is a paid plugin that you can purchase with a 14-day money-back guarantee. As with other paid Jetpack plugins, Scan users also have access to our priority support.

Jetpack Protect requires a publicly accessible site to perform the vulnerability scan.

I use it on my websites built for clients as it makes finding security issues a breeze when I have multiple third party plugins installed!
