I would prefer to have both firewall that is both have equal importance, software firewall as well as hardware firewall.

On Linux server, Config Server Security that is CSF is widely used. It is best among all.

Now a days, firewall has the both configuration, hardware as well as software firewall. Hardware firewall was previously used with the systems having broadband devices connected to it. Those used to filter the packets.

Software firewall is now used worldwide. It has the number of customization option. You can set number of rules in the software firewall.

There is two security level at physical level and another for virtually level.
At physical level(Network level), you can setting all the security for DDS protection as well you can install and setup firewall/csf at virtually level.

Some pretty common misconceptions here:

#1: The size of your port doesn't matter. What matters is your hardware. If your hardware can't handle the attack, then you're likely going to be in big trouble when that real attack comes in. The size of the port is rather minimal when hardware comes into consideration.
#2: CSF is not a firewall. It is a frontend to IPtables
#3: Hardware firewalls will always be important , way more so than software (IE: CSF). These are somewhat more complicated, however, which is why companies charge big $$$ for software firewall frontends.
