In this post I will cover a free plugin that is my go to plugin for securing wordpress sites. In fact whenever I install a new site it is the first plugin that I install. Wordfence Security gives you real time protection in that you are connected to their network of protection. Once a threat is detected on one site all sites are notified and protected from this threat or attack. The videos below will show how I use the wordfence plugin and some best practices for securing your website.
Let me know if this helps or what you are using for wordpress security in the comments below.
