    I recommend and use Chirpy's apps (configserver.com) with my own servers as well as with most all my security consulting and server management clients. His apps all work fairly well and there is not much sense re-inventing the wheel when these applications are available which leaves more time to focus on scripting other areas that may need more attention.

    Now in regard to your "ddos app" comment above, you may want to take a look at Mod_Evasive for Apache which helps a bit with DoS attacks of a web based nature. Used in combination with Chirpy's CSF Firewall (properly configured) and Mod_Security with a better ruleset such as from GotRoot.Com, this will give you a fairly effective solution about as far as you can go before looking at hardware based options.

    It is also worthwhile to note that most Cpanel servers also have a basic portscanner monitor installed called "portsentry" but by default configuration is almost completely useless and effectively turned off. However, if you update the configuration correctly, you can turn it into a fairly effective additional line of defense which also works very well alongside CSF and the other items previously mentioned above.
