Thank you for your reply.

So the best way to use Cassandra would be at least behind a firewall. 

In the future is it possible to add a username/password type security in? I plan to support the project, just as soon as I have some revenue coming in through my business.

Also I should point out, that the default startup script for Cassandra also enables the Java debugger and JMX connections from anywhere, both of which are probably even more security risks than Cassandra's own protocols.
