Which is a better method for locking down mgmt to the server - `CSF` or WHM's `Host Access Control`? From a security perspective, what is the difference on using one versus the other?

My preference is to only provide login prompt to specific hosts/IPs and then have an implicit deny on everything else - and am not certain of the best method to do this with.
