Web host can provide security at server lever but if you are using any third party scripts/plugins/templates etc. and there is any security issue with them, your web host can't do anything for you. any security related to your code and scripts are yours.

As Kailash said host can provide security at server lever. Most host also have a email scanning software (on shared hosting) to detect f someone is spamming. But apart from this a web host can't do much. If your code is buggy & there are security holes in your website then web host can't help you in that case.
