    I've been using the Wordfence plugin(free version) for several years across all our WP sites and it has saved me lots of hassles particularly in isolating spam attacks and stopping illegal logins.

    I used the Wordfence free plugin as well and liked it so much that I ended up buying it a few months back. I can't recommend it enough (both the free and paid if your budget allows for it)

    +1 for Wordfence

    Some people prefer Better WP Security so worth checking that one out as well but I think Wordfence is slightly a more popular one.

    First of all I would say you must secure website manually by following Presentation of WordPress Security Expert "Dre Armeda".
    http://www.slideshare.net/armeda/presentations
    Then you can use a plugin, I've used "WordFence" personally. It works very well.
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/
    Didn't use it, but its stats says it is up trending.

    Good luck ! Have secure world ;)
