I keep getting brute force attack warnings in my email

We have installed a brute force detector & firewall on your server this is a FREE added layer of security. Most providers do not do this for you. It will protect your SSH,FTP,and apache web server (with password protection on) from unauthorized access.

Please read your new server welcome email it explains your brute force detector

Cpanel Servers Are now being built with CSF Firewall preinstalled Please see your new server welcome Email for configuration instructions.

We can remove it but the attacks will still keep coming (you just wont know it )
port 22 SSH is the most common port for password hacks most are from robots (compromised web servers from around the world)
to stop the robots set your SSH port to a higher unused port ( if you do not know how to do this we can set it up for you)
