We manage security for all servers including PHP, .NET, and the operating systems What do I manage? You are responsible for securing your website code.
Firewalls at the infrastructure level, DDoS mitigation, antispam and antivirus (for legacy email accounts only).
All standard ports such as...80(HTTP), 443(HTTPS), 587(SMTP), 465(SMTPS), etc.
On Cloud Sites we fully manage the back-end infrastructure and are responsible for server-side security, patching, etc. Your database will be secure assuming you create a unique database username and secure strong password and keep this safe. Your database will be provisioned on a database cluster separate from the web servers running your site/application for greater performance and redundancy.
No, if you want password protection you have to set that up in your code (for folders or groups of folders)
