vBSecurity keeps a watchful eye over your forum even when you are not there, and has the capability to alert you of any suspicious activity.

vBSecurity is the ideal product for forums that are concerned about security, or wish to be alerted when something suspicious happens.
It keeps a watchful eye on your configuration file, ensuring that it does not get modified by mods or plugins.
Another important feature is the ability to add a secondary login, unique to each administrator, that is required before accessing the AdminCP. Ideal for forums where multiple administrators may share login information, or where administrators may log in from public computers.
Add in quick settings for the most vital vBulletin Options, Usergroup password settings and recommendations for how to "harden" your forum against attacks, vBSecurity can easily be called one of the most comprehensive security suites for your vBulletin forum.
