WP Cerber Security & Antispam
We use the service “Cerber Security & Antispam”. The plug-in protects websites against brute force attacks, blocks harmful requests from IPs or subnets when a defined retry limit is exceeded. This makes brute-force attacks or distributed brute-force attacks of botnets impossible. Furthermore, it is possible to restrict, block, or allow access with a Black IP Access List and a White IP Access List.
According to the provider no data is collected or processed in this context – neither through the services nor through the software offered.

This information is collected and retained by the web site administrator for, as the name might suggest, security and auditing purposes.
Once activated, the plug-in logs a time-stamped record of when a logged-in user takes the following actions: Logs in and out, page visits, actions taken & order actions.
The time-stamped record includes the following information: The user’s login name, user’s actual name as entered when their account was set up, user’s role, IP address from which the user accessed the site & time and date of each action detailed above while the user was logged in.
The data captured by the WP Security Audit Log plug-in is stored by the web site administrator for a period of 6 months solely for security and auditing purposes.
Information captured by WP Security Audit Log is accessed only by the administrators of the web site and is stored on the web site’s database. Information captured by the WP Security Audit Log is not shared with third parties except in the case of law enforcement requests.
