I use CSF (CLI version, as I refuse to touch cPanel) and also love it. Some
may call this a bit paranoid, but I even ban IP addresses (temporarily) on
a certain port scan threshold.

It also alerts me when system file hashes have changed.

It doesn't do anything for the actual websites though.

I have noticed an huge increase in brute force attempts on my co-located
server.  They have been hitting SSH and Exim.  I am running CSF / LFD on
recommendation from Randy and love it, but the attackers appear to be
hitting from a huge range of IP's and only a few hits at a time, and then
they move to a different IP and attack again.

I have not been hacked, but I don't like all this "negative" brute force
