With the prevalence of hackers and spammers, as well as the possibility of losing data from your site in a manner of different ways, it is more important than ever to make sure that your site is as secure as possible. When a website is compromised it can affect a company in a number of different ways, from putting a dent in your reputation to damaging your bottom line; luckily, though, there are plenty of plugins out there to help solve this problem. Here are 5 of the best:
Clef offers easy yet effective security for online accounts with an innovative login system that allows a company’s users to securely log-in to the site without the need for a password. Boasting public key auth protection, advanced phishing protection and verified user information, Clef uses mobile cryptography to completely do away with the need for usernames and passwords, instead allowing users to confirm their identity using their mobile phones.
There are a range of different options available, including a basic package which uses Clef’s own app, and Clef Native which is fully integrated into the customer’s own app.
WordFence is a WordPress security plugin which aims to both prevent hackers from accessing your site and ensure that you are notified as soon as possible should a problem arise.

With both free and premium options available, WordFence also offers a flexible pricing structure.
Google Authenticator uses a mobile phone app to enable two-step authentification for your account. Recommended for administrator accounts in particular, it works by generating a secret code that allows you to login far more securely than with a username and password alone.
