Jetpack brings BruteProtect features under its umbrella
After Automattic’s acquisition of BruteProtect last fall, it is unsurprising that today they bring some BruteProtect features under the Jetpack umbrella.
The new features include brute force login attempt protection, as well as a website scanner to check for malicious code.
The change is part of the 3.4 release of Jetpack, which has a long changelog. Notably (to me), it includes a hideous green toggle on the stats widget by default now, further making me cringe at the aggressive Jetpack UI.
