But “hardening” is not a simple or straightforward task. There is no “one-click” solution.

I was going to say this before but I didn’t want to overwhelm you. It starts with grsecurity, maybe more. Then there’s either a really complex SELinux config or a slightly easier AppArmor config. Then there’s LXC or some other virtualization tool to keep things contained. Then there’s proper file permissions and SSH key management. Then there’s security patches. See where I’m going? I’ve just barely scratched the surface. That is pretty minimal and its not that easy.

I’d pay a real sys admin and not trust some dude or company that uses buzzwords and marketing jargon.
