ssh no go

Whenever you use any type of remote access, it comes with the risk of someone sniffing into it. The same risks apply for VNC/RDP or TeamViewer. BUT SSH is probably one of the most securest tools of them.
I think all that cleverwise was trying to do here is to explain you why the firewall is showing you a warning. That doesn't mean that there is an actual serious threat by opening port 22.

If you want to make your SSH connection really secure, the best advice is to use safe passwords and/or keyfiles for all of the SSH users. (Safe passwords include numbers, uppercase letters, lowercase letters, brackets, minus, at least 20 characters and so on.) Security will also benefit if the user "root" can't login directly to SSH. 

If you already have a VPN set up, it would be more secure to use it to connect to your SSH-PC instead of making the SSH-PC available to the public internet (f.e. forwarding port 22 to your SSH-PC in the router)
