This does not enhance security

All it does is stop Bonjour from advertising the availability of SSH/SFTP. Bonjour allows someone non technical to know that the services are there. This does not turn off SSH/SFTP services. Without Bonjour, all that is needed is a port scanner to discover the availability of these services.
