Although there are many security elements you can implement to tighten security on your WordPress blog, there are also many great WordPress Security Plugins available.
WordPress Security plugins can help find web server vulnerabilities, scan for malware, block IPs, make backups, track system events, control comment spam, etc.
These security plugins are easy to download and install without the need for technical knowledge.
Keep in mind, I'm not suggesting that you install a bunch of security plugins and your WordPres site is safe from malicious hackers. There is no “set it and forget it.” These can only help enhance security and must be maintained.
I, myself, sometimes add over 100 security elements when securing an individual site. My average is over 60 security elements per website, which may include up to 16 security plugins (if needed).
I'd love to get you input on which WordPress Security Plugins you find useful.
What are your favorite WordPress Security Plugins and why?
