    FWIW, I use both WordFence and Bulletproof security (the free versions) on several of my blogs and they work great for me. But you have to be a bit of a techie especially with Bulletproof, because if you're not careful with it, you can lock yourself out of your website (don't worry, there's a simple workaround if you do).

      Have used both - I usually go with Wordfence, but you either have to turn off notifications regarding out of date themes/plugins or WP version, or live through the onslaught of email alerts on them.

      Not a big deal if you have one site, kind of a pain with multiples.

    wordfence works good, apart from that keep your wordpress plugins and softwares upto date.

  • The best thing to do is just to backup your wordpress site..

    Use a FTP software & copy all files onto your computer, named as ''Backup [Date]''

    Then you can import the previous data back in..

    iThemes Security does quite a lot of hardening, and also sort of teaches you what should be done on a site. Wordfence is a fairly good security scanner.

    A backup tool is an essential for security and continuity, too. I use BackupBuddy.

    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
    Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

    What's your excuse?

    I personally use "Wordfence" for security of my blog and assume it as one of the best security plugin for WordPress Blogs.
