Is rpcbind needed or can it be removed?

On our recently installed Centos 7 servers, the process is dead, looks like this:
Code:
[root@server23: /etc/csf]# systemctl status rpcbind
● rpcbind.service - RPC bind service
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/rpcbind.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)

Sep 13 02:26:12 server23.hosting010.nl systemd[1]: Dependency failed for RPC bind service.
Sep 13 02:26:12 server23.hosting010.nl systemd[1]: Job rpcbind.service/start failed with result 'dependency'.
Seems some mssing dependency, I don't know why.

We also have a VPS installed it's working and I got CSF mails about it's process time (don't have it yet in csf.pignore)
Code:
[root@server: ~]# systemctl status rpcbind
● rpcbind.service - RPC bind service
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/rpcbind.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (running) since Thu 2019-09-19 01:32:31 CEST; 12h ago
  Process: 1521 ExecStart=/sbin/rpcbind -w $RPCBIND_ARGS (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
 Main PID: 1535 (rpcbind)
   CGroup: /system.slice/rpcbind.service
           └─1535 /sbin/rpcbind -w

Sep 19 01:32:31 server.mike-modding.com systemd[1]: Started RPC bind service.
Since it's dead on the other servers, I wonder if it's even needed, otherwise I could just stop and delete it from the system. So is this needed for a server?
