    As far as I'm aware 2-factor authentication is only currently available for your actual cPanel login.
    cPanel FTP uses standard username & password authentication & 2-factor is not currently available.

    cPanel is as secure as you can make it, by following the security tips and taking the various precautions. With a strong password, firewall, secure SSH, PHP, and web servers, you can have robust cPanel security.

    Is PCMatic good as antivirus in this case? I've read Nathan Collier article and liked it. Would like to try it. I have one web project on CPanel places in one of the local hosting. Or maybe you can recommend something else.
