You should configure it properly after getting it installed on the server. Like disabling test mode, allowing important ports, tweaking tcp flood settings. Number of options can be found in the /etc/csf/csf.conf file.

CSF is great, however you can never go past a hardware based firewall. We encourage people to use both CSF and a hardware firewall where possible.

If you don't rent/own the rackspace and can;t use a hardware firewall, choose a host that offers a hardware firewall as default.

not a bad idea, security is more important, if you get hardware firewall this too good, but CSF is also good option to secure your server.

You can also get more good option to secure the server by paid service on CSF.
