In WordPress, we have a lot of security plugins and you do need to use one.

Quickly go to http://Wordpress.com and do a search for the WordPress security plugin. Talking about security on WordPress don’t means WordPress doesn’t secured, but is because there is insecurity with the security plugin you installed or a theme that you have installed and brute force attacks

So, the best security measures you can take now is to make sure you have a good backup system in place and you know how to actually restore those backups.

Now let’s take a look at the five best security WordPress plugins.

1.  WordFence: – It is the most popular and widely used WordPress security plugin. I personally use WordFence myself and I know a lot of peoples that use WordPress and have also came across that use it that they don’t care or consider any other security plugins. But I would want to let you know that Wordfence really is:

Wordfence monitors brute force attacks and locks out any attempts after too many login attempts. You can lock out anyone who uses an invalid username and even enable 2-factor authentication for better security.

With its country blocking feature, you can stop attacks and content theft originating from a specific geographic region. Based on pattern matching and IP ranges, you can also block entire malicious networks and human activity that looks suspicious.

WordFence let you check your IP address reputation so you can ensure your customer emails aren’t marked as spam.

It’s equipped with a unique grading system, so you can see which areas of your WordPress site are protected, and what you need to improve upon. Since it’s visually based it’s easy to see and make amendment areas of your site that might be weak.
