Bit51 is now part of iThemes

I’m happy to announce that Bit51 and all its plugins and other software has found an excellent partner in WordPress plugin company iThemes. This will allow for much more advanced development on Better WP Security and other plugins as well as a great compliment of services with BackupBuddy, Exchange and all the other wonderful iThemes products.

Over the coming weeks and months I’ll be migrating content off of this site and onto my own site and you’ll start seeing some incredible improvements in Better WP Security and other plugins.

This is going to be awesome!
