    I'm doing most of my security measures through Cloudflare and do not use any specific WordPress "security" plugins.

    I have a JS authentication Page Rule on wp-login.php and I block xml-rpc requests. I use this Google Authenticator plugin for 2FA for editors, and use Simple Cloudflare Turnstile to protect the login page and my contact form (powered by Contact Form 7).

    I have stuck with this one now (and use Cloudflare)

    Sucuri Security – Auditing, Malware Scanner and Security Hardening

    This is one thats installed as standard on CMM with option 22 and works really well

    One I would steer clear of is BulletProof Security - I used to use it on a lot on a lot of WP sites (it uses htaccess so Apache servers only).... On a WP plugin update it would nearly always take the site down - Its paid for as well - so I opened support tickets - they never fixed it and it became a pain in the backside - so I binned it - which again on uninstall took sites down - I posted on their forum about my issues and woes - all my threads were deleted as they didnt like negative criticism.......
