My order:

Wordfence Security

What features I actually need

Features I need:

  • Watch over files (everything) and tells you when changes happen, specially with .php extension. WordPress Sentinel was unmaintained plugin that was doing exactly that.

  • Log 404’s: I have achieved that with Redirection plugin, that we need for other things, mostly 301 redirections.

Nice to have:

WP Performance & Security Security by Supsystic Asgard Security Scanner Sucuri Security - Auditing, Malware Scanner and Security Hardening VaultPress

Theme Authenticity Checker (TAC) Sucuri Security - Auditing, Malware Scanner and Security Hardening Acunetix WP Security All In One WP Security & Firewall Wordfence Security

Plugins to consider:

  • Code Analyzer Adds Analyze code option on the existing Installed Plugins page. Beautiful plugin, but only for testing other plugin’s code and finding unwanted code in those plugins.

  • VIP Scanner
    As an offical Automattic/vip-scanner plugin it should be trusted. Used for checking Theme compatibility; some sort of combination of what used to be the Theme Checker and the Exploit Scanner, exclusively for theme.

  • Quttera Web Malware Scanner Will call Quttera remote but free scan. Scanning malware, trojans, backdoors, worms, viruses, spywares and other threats as well as JavaScript code obfuscation, exploits, malicious iframes, malicious code injection, malicious code obfuscation, auto-generated malicious content, redirects, hidden eval code and more. Also, it will check whether your website is blacklisted by Google and other blacklisting authorities.

Forget about these plugins:

Didn’t bother to do a detailed analysis:

  • Acunetix WP Security simply has too much bad reviews, specifically about being too slow. It has a file scan and a couple of configuration directives.
