1. Sucuri
Seasoned WordPress users would be aware of Sucuri
which is a top security product. It comes with
some excellent features like security activity
auditing and file integrity monitoring. The tool
accesses various blacklist engines like AVG,
Norton, Google Safe Browsing, and many others
besides its own Sucuri Labs. It immediately
alerts a user if it spots the client website on
any of the top blacklisting agencies. The product
earlier came in a premium version which was
deprecated in 2014. However, there are still some
features which require the payment fo a specified
fee for activation, like the website firewall.
2. Wordfence
Another hugely popular tool that you can use for
protecting your interface is Wordfence. This open
source software comes with a malware scanner and
firewall which have been designed specifically
for WordPress. The firewall prevents attacks at
the endpoint and unlike cloud-based services
cannot be bypassed. The scanner checks the core
files, themes, and plugins for bad URLs, harmful
redirects, code injections, and other malware.
The tool compares the current state of your
installation, themes, and plugins with the one
defined in the WordPress.org repository. It
informs the users as soon as it identifies a
deviation. The plugin allows subscribers to block
hackers by IP or define advanced rules based on
hostname, IP range, user agent, etc.
3. All In One WP Security Firewall
The All In One WP Security Firewall plugin is a
powerful tool with an intuitive interface. It
uses visual indicators like graphs and meters to
explain key metrics like security strength. The
security and firewall rules are divided into
three sections namely, basic, intermediate, and
advanced. This is has been done to let users
apply the rules progressively without affecting
the websites functionality. The product comes
with the logic lockdown feature which will enable
you to bar visitors with a specified IP address
or range for a pre-defined time period. You can
use the tool to schedule automatic backups and
change the wp prefix of the database to a value
of your choice.

Jetpack is one of the best WordPress security
plugins available. It is a comprehensive set of
tools for managing and securing an interface
besides monitoring its performance. Jetpack is a
freemium product and you can download its basic
version for free. However, it will be pertinent
to choose a paid plan as it will give access to
the complete suite of tools. The premium version
will enable you to create a backup of your
website either once every day or in real time. It
safeguards your interface from malware and
brute-force attacks and possesses the automated
threat resolution feature. This reliable tool is
offered by Automattic, the same team which
manages WordPress.
5. BulletProof Security
BulletProof Security is another freemium tool
which comes with a range of handy features. Users
can control the security of their interface
through its setup wizard. The wizard runs
pre-installation checks to identify
vulnerabilities and displays the troubleshooting
method to resolve the issue. The plugin comes
with login safety and monitoring features. It
enables owners to lock out users account if they
want to. You can use the solution to create
database backups manually or automatically.
Subscribers have the option of scheduling the
backups at an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly
6. iThemes Security
Did you convert Drupal to WordPress or migrate
from any other format? Then you must try the
iThemes Security plugin. This tool which was
earlier known as Better WP Security offers you
more than 30 ways to secure your interface. It
strengthens user credentials and prevents
automated attacks. The tool is available in a
free as well as a paid variant. The premium
version has a range of useful features like
two-factor authentication and malware scan
scheduling. You can set a time at which the
plugin will automatically scan your interface for
malware. It enables you to closely monitor your
visitors on-site behavior by tracking their
logins, logouts, and editing activities.
7. VaultPress
VaultPress is a security scanning plugin offered
by Automattic. Powered by Jetpack, this effective
tool also creates backups of an interface. You
cannot lose a single post, comment, revision,
media, etc. when you install the solution. The
paid package includes brute force attack
protection and uptime monitoring. It also offers
spam protection for comments. Users can get
automated backup creation and get access to a
30-day backup archive. They also get the facility
to restore in a single click and migrate an
interface easily.
