Do I need another firewall on the server even with cPGuard ?

It helped a lot! It seems to have found an old problem with it. Something permanently uploaded malicious codes to a cPanel account. cPguard lite found a webshell virus that no other antivirus found, including world famous imunifyAV+ and 360.Now it seems that this harmful attempt has abated.
