Recent years have seen the diversity and inventiveness of cyber-crime steadily increase. Certain attacks have left some big corporations as well as other organisations reeling from the damage. Cyber-attacks mainly cause loss of credibility, but also loss of data, time and money. Indeed, they are used as a vector of extortion and pressure. Governmental bodies and IT professionals have raised the profile of cyber-security.

Sadly, it remains side-lined by more tangible and often pecuniary concerns within too many businesses. Find out some simple security steps to follow as we look at RDP security. Then, come and discover how RDS Tools fits the bill for affordable Microsoft based cyber-security.
