Recommended plugins to secure your Wordpress

Wordpress is the most popular content management system in the world, which make it one of the most targeted platform for hackers.

Below are some plugins we recommend for our hosting clients which will help secure their websites:

  • Wordfence - An endpoint firewall and malware scanner that were built from the ground up to protect WordPress.  We recommend everyone to use this.
  • Login IP & Country Restriction - Restrict login to your Wordpress from allowed country only.  This is useful if your users are limited to a few countries.
  • Sucuri Security - If you are super paranoid about security, you can also install this on top of Wordfence.  This provides some reports which are not in Wordfence.
  • MainWP - This plugin really helps if you manage multiple Wordpress websites.  It allows you to manage multiple Wordpress website in a centralise location.  This will help you keep all your plugins and themes up to date.
  • Loginizer - Plugin which helps you fight against bruteforce attack by blocking login for the IP after it reaches maximum retries allowed. 
  • FraudLabs Pro - If you are doing ecommerce, this plugin will protect you from malicious fraudsters.
