To disable network access where not absolutely needed
and filter if possible where needed? (there are also
port-knocking implementations for cases where users might
know how to ask to pass them through but we can't know their
IPs beforehand)

PS: just curious, how many MySQL/Pg/etc packages out there still
default to allowing remote access?  Ours don't for ages.
