Top Free and Premium Security Extensions /Addons for WordPress

As hackers and spammers continue to build capabilities and target WordPress websites, it’s important for webmasters to utilize an optimum number of the best security plugins for WordPress. Whereas conventional WordPress security plugins are mostly about blocking accesses to your websites from unknown IPs by sending out email verification links, contemporary WordPress plugins offer more sophisticated and targeted security covers. Right from automatic encryption of your login credentials to generation of image based CAPCHA codes – the modern breed of security plugins for WordPress is more than a match for even the most cunning of hackers.

Even if you don’t have an SSL security certificate and a dedicated IP that this certificate necessitates, you can trust encryption plugins to encode your password so that nobody is able to crack into your website. Advanced password plugins can enforce powerful passwords, necessitate timely password changes, and can even lock down on dormant sessions to crack down on brute force attacks. Apart from password plugins, firewall based security plugins are also momentous, ensuring that no one sends out malicious requests to your website or injects malicious code into your databases. Extensions to these plugins can block out known bad requests by checking queries with massive databases of known non-trusted sources.

Apart from the powerful security functionalities brought to you by the above mentioned plugins, you could also use site clean-up plugins and 3rd party plugins analyses tools to keep maliciously coded plugins at bay. Trust BestPlugins’ collection of the most credible security plugins to safeguard your WordPress website against all kinds of hacking and spamming attacks.
