Quality WordPRess plugins add new functionality or extend existing functionality on your site, allowing you to create virtually any kind of website, from ecommerce stores to portfolios to directory sites.

Search Engine Journal contributor Roger Montti has published an article featuring 11 useful WordPress plugins for your websites.

He says, “There are many excellent choices for security plugins. Among the choices, three stand out to me as worthy of consideration.

1. Wordfence

Wordfence hardens a website against external threats by locking down areas of the site that are commonly exploited – and has a malware scan to check for intrusions.

It does things like blocking malicious files from executing in WordPress folders where they commonly hide, sending alerts when plugins and themes need updating, and providing an option to force strong passwords.

It even provides the option for instituting two-factor authentication – previously a Premium feature, now available in the free version.”
