Configured brute force protection for WordPress logins on the server today after I noticed some increasingly high CPU usage. cPHulk already monitors all of the other ports and blocks accordingly, but I needed something that would let me affect all WordPress installations at once with minimal involvement moving forward (which is why all sites have Wordfence installed too). I followed the instructions at this link (here) and within about 20 minutes it was back to normal, but I had 1060 pages of blocked IP logs in those 20 minutes. The new WHM makes it super easy to add these rules, and it handles it much faster and using less resources than WordPress.
