Provides active security for your Umbraco site using customizable components

There is no end of ways that your Umbraco site can be compromised, scrapped or mistreated. A few of the more famous can be reduced with the addition of a security layer checking each and every request; whether its access to Umbraco admin pages, media files or anonymous API end points. Shield integrates into the Umbraco backend to allow easy configuration of specialized modules, even across load balanced environments.
