I'm using Better WP Security, Matt. It's working rather well for me so far.

Great post, Matt. I especially agree that it's important to have a wp plugin installed to backup your blog. In my early days of blogging, I can't tell you how many blogs and content I've lost due to not having proper backup on my site.

It's also important to have some kind of wp security plugin installed to protect against hackers. I've just recently installed one and I'm so glad I did. I had no idea how many times people were attempting to hack my site until I viewed the bad login attempt reports. It was shocking! Thanks for sharing this post with us. I'm glad to have found it on bizsugar.com.
