iThemes has hired Chris Wiegman and taken over his very popular plugin, Better WP Security. Better WP Security has over a million downloads on WordPress.org and sells commercial support and installation services on FooPlugins. Better WP Security also has excellent ratings.
This is another smart move by iThemes in the utility / safety space, as I noted and Cory Miller confirmed when they launched Sync. I’m really fascinated to see how they end up framing all of these tools together from a marketing perspective. I’m also curious to see how they may alter Better WP Security’s business model.
