In my previous life, working on Wall Street, my firm wanted us to learn about insurance. Not the most thrilling of subjects, but one idea that was imparted has always suck with me: People don’t want insurance, until the need insurance. And as I’ve moved from my 20s, through my 30s and now in my, gulp, 40′s I have realized how incredibly accurate that statement is; it’s simply, spot-on.
For most people, securing their blog is exactly the same. I’ve heard “my blog got hacked” on several occasions, and my first question is, what did you do to secure it? I always get a stammered response–”secure it?” “How do I do that?” At that point its too late to close the barn door, as the bull’s already in the pasture!
So, here are five more, highly-rated, security oriented plugins (with links directly to the plugin’s website) that you should check out, they won’t cost you a thing, and no insurance salesman will be knocking on your door!
WP Security Scan A great plugin that scans your blog and highlights any vulnerabilities. An absolute must have.
I thought I would give some additional attention to WordPress security plugins that we recommend, as security, whether for large multi-national companies or small individual blogs, is such an important factor, yet is often overlooked–especially at the individual level. Of course, we would all be upset to be hacked and all the hours of blogging be lost!
One of my absolute favorites is the plugin Limit Login Attempts. This is a simple plugin that when installed and activated will limit the number of login attempts to your site, then after the preset number of failed attempts will lock the ability to login for a customizable about of time. It will also automatically email the site’s administrators when a specific and customizable number of login fails are reached. This is key to inhibiting brute force attacks on your blog/website as WordPress does not limit the number of attempts to login.
WordPress plugins are one of the main reasons to use WordPress, there are thousands of them that offer a great deal of flexibility to your blog/site. Taking advantage of them is simple, usually free, and can help you drive more traffic and get noticed. Here’s how to add a WordPress plugin to your blog.
