    CSF use iptables in the backend. Iptables is installed by default during the OS installation. So only thing you need to do is install and configure CSF properly as per your needs.

    CentOS, a Red Hat based distro. You can also implement a first layer firewall as DMZ before your primary server

    If an attack overwhelmes your physical connection, such as a 10Gbps attack hitting your 100Mbps connection, iptables won't do much. If denial of service attacks are going to be a problem, or are currently a problem, you need to find a provider with the proper infrastructure to mitigate such an attack quickly but these providers do not come at a cheap cost. If you think you found something cheap, that basic Cisco Guard firewall won't help much!
