The extension works in tandem with the Jetpack Protect plugin on your child sites. Both the extension and the plugin are free to download and use.
NOTE: Jetpack Protect automatically scans your child sites once per day. This means that after resolving vulnerability issues, it can take up to 24 hours before the extension reflects changes.
