    Depending on what your needs are (and how your home internet works), the easiest way to secure wordpress is to block people through your .htaaccess.

    Most of my sites, I'm the only one that ever has a reason to login, and my IP address at home and at work doesn't change to often. So I just put the code below into my .htaaccess file through the FTP server.

    Code:
    <Files wp-login.php>
        order deny,allow
        Deny from all
    #whitelist work
    allow from x.x.x.x
    #whitelist home
    allow from x.x.x.x
    </files>

    A strong password is one. I also use the plugin below to "rename" my wp-login page. It keeps most bruteforcers away from that page, but some of them still manage to get to it.

    Aside from that, updating your themes, plugins, and WP CMS regularly helps.

    Well, I didn't tried swift security yet, but I would also suggest to check with iThemes security. This is by far the best (and the most easy to use) security plugin for WordPress. It's updating regularly. I consider it to be an essential one.
