    wp-ids
    wordpress-security scan
    login-lockdown
    wp-firewall

    and of course put a .htaccess file into your wp-admin folder with these lines:

    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from xxx

    The xxx is the first 3 digits of your IP address. now only those visitors sharing the same ISP and same first 3 digits of the IP will be able to even see your wp-admin login page. Your front-end is secured now so you only need to worry about the server being hacked.
