Another favorite when it comes to all-inclusive security plugins is Wordfence Security. It offers similar features to Sucuri, including:
- A WAF that blocks malicious traffic before it attacks your site
- Malware scanning to check files, plugins, and themes before they’re uploaded
- Two-factor authentication (2FA) and login limits to prevent brute force attacks
- Real-time live traffic and analytics monitoring
Additionally, Wordfence is easy to use and relatively affordable. All of the features listed above – including the WAF – are free. The premium version of this plugin offers more frequent scans, spam protection, and other advanced features for $99 per year.
