    I recently had my server compromised.

    What type of protection do I need to protect against hackers?

    For example, this is easy picking for any hacker trying to bruteforce their way in:
    http://ipaddress:2086
    http://somesite.com:2082

    Especially for WHM, most common usernames are root or admin. What kind of protection do we have against this?

    Good suggestion but I am looking for something more secure. Any other options?
