Actifend needs a plugin and a simple Android app to work. They are both very easy to download and simple to use.
The ActiFend security analytics engine in the cloud processes your website access logs in realtime to detect any attacks and successful hacks.
Any alerts generated in the process are delivered through the ActiFend Mobile App. You can use the app to act on these alerts, backup your website or restore it to a previously stored state.
At this stage, WordPress is the first CMS supported by ActiFend. Support for other platforms is planned for near future.

It only takes a minute to install ActiFend from the mobile app.

    Click on the “Install Plugin” button.
  • Use your WordPress admin credentials to login and click on “install” then “activate” to complete the installation

ActiFend is capable of blocking certain attacks such as bruteforce attack on your website automatically.
As a deliberate design choice to protect your website visitors, ActiFend does not access any data submitted to you by your users. As a result, ActiFend does not automatically block certain attacks such as SQL Injection. However, this is adequately compensated by real-time hack detection.
When a visitor accesses one of your web pages, one or more resources on your server are served to the visitor.
These may include images, JavaScript files, stylesheets, and so on. Each such resource served/accessed is an
event for the webserver, and for ActiFend.
We have recently added a FREE tier to ActiFend. When your subscription expires, ActiFend subscription will change from PRO to FREE. You may receive certain types of alerts – but will not be able to see the details.
For a limited period of time (3 weeks at this time) your existing backups will be retained.
You will be able to resume full functionality (including any backups from earlier period if within the retention period) upon renewing your subscription.
Yes, we do offer full refunds / partial refunds based on your service experience and elapsed subscription period. Please refer to our Refunds and Cancellation Policy for details.
Taxes are country/state/area specific – and are not part of ActiFend pricing. The payment service provider will add the charges for the applicable taxes and levies as required by your local laws.
There are two possible reasons for any difference between the displayed pricing (usually
in USD), and the amount charged to you.

  1. Taxes and levies as required by the local laws and regulations.
  2. ActiFend uses INR as its base currency, but displays the closest equivalent USD
    for the convenience of customers. Currency rate fluctuations may cause some small
ActiFend pricing is is based on WordPress instances as mapped to website hostnames. It is not related to domain / sub-domain names.
One instance of ActiFend WordPress Plugin can only be configured with one website hostname (e.g., www.example.com). Each such website is treated as a separate asset.
