I suggest you to add Sucuri as an alternative to the wordfenece security plugin.

I have used YoastSeo and contact for 7 plugins and they really do what their documentation says, but Wordfence Security is the new one for me. I would expect it to be as you described it here.
Thanks.

Excellent list.

I am using Yoast SEO and WP Optimize. I like the functionality of Yoast provides and makes my blog Search Engine friendly. That helped me a lot to get higher ranking on Google, and I can drive traffic from search engine.

WP-Optimize helps me to optimize my blog loading time, which makes my users stick to it and come back again to visit my new blog posts.
