The issue of whuch plugin best does the job is entirely for the site owner/admin to take. However, in this tutorial, we will provide you with the top three security plugins that we have found to be valuable in securing your WordPress website. We strongly recommend that whichever plugin you choose should be properly maintained. Below are our recommended three:

WordFence

The good thing about WordFence is that it will perform a scan on all of your source code files, themes, and plugins to verify their integrity and security. AIn addition, this plugin offers firewalls,dditionally, A great and unique feature of this plugin is the real-time map on the WordFence homepage that tracks attacks on WordPress sites. This map is used as a crowd-sourced approach to blocking attacks. If one site using the plugin is attacked, the attacker is then blocked by all other sites using the plugin, allowing your site to be even more protected.
