You can run Linux without AV, for *nix systems Patching... is a must! also use the right user:group, access permission, turn off unwanted services, disable unused modules, tune/hardening  server,  hide configuration files, restrict access, firewall would help to protect the system. If you want AV, check out ClamAV, rkhunter, chkrootkit and avg scanners

As a firewall you can block IP Address using Fail2ban and IPTables
