Technically iptables or firewalld come installed by default, so you are indeed using a firewall - but is it being utilized, is the real question to be asking. If you don't know how to manage a firewall over the command line, I would recommend you install some form of firewall management software like CSF or APF (APF does not integrate with cPanel in the same way as CSF) or even some other management system.
