The iThemes Security Pro plugin already helps you lock down your WordPress website down to the user-level with the User Security Check and User Logging features. Today, we are excited to roll out the New User Groups feature gives you the power to enforce the right level of security for the right people.
Introducing User Groups: The Right Amount of Security for The Right People
There is a balance of restriction and usability that you must strike when implementing a security strategy. Using the new User Groups, you can create a group of everyone who can make changes to your site and give them the freedom to make changes to security settings.
Any user that can make changes to your website becomes a security threat when their access falls into the wrong hands. With great power comes great responsibility. Any group that has the power to change your site has the responsibility to secure their account with two-factor authentication.
Whether you are running an eCommerce shop or a membership site, you have a group of users who don’t have the power to do any damage outside of their account. While it is helpful to give your customers the tools to protect their accounts, it doesn’t mean you have to require them to use them.
