We have been made aware of one of our clients having a sustained series of attack on their WP site, and as an additional step we have introduced the Ultimate Blog Security plugin for WordPress. This has an easy to understand layout and provides a scoring feature so you can quickly see how high your blog security rates. Where there are some failings in locking down your site, a series of helpful tips are provided to elucidate on the issue found.
This is one of a range of plugins that can provide enhanced restrictions to accessing your WordPress site, and one which is useful to beginners and more advanced users alike.
