Executive Summary: Every time we connect to the Internet, we make decisions that affect our cybersecurity. Sophisticated cyber actors and nation-states exploit vulnerabilities to steal information and money and are developing capabilities to disrupt, destroy, or threaten the delivery of essential services. RDS-Tools is excited to announce the "Homeland Access Protection" as part of the features of RDS-Knight, the best cyber security Tool to fight RDP threats.

Cyber security is a shared responsibility

Our daily life, economic vitality, and national security depend on a stable, safe, and resilient cyberspace. Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure are vulnerable to a wide range of risk stemming from both physical and cyber threats and hazards. Many malicious attacks are designed to steal information and disrupt, deny access to, degrade, or destroy critical information systems.We each have to do our part to keep the Internet safe. When we all take simple steps to be safer online, it makes using the Internet a more secure experience for everyone.

Hackers know you use Remote Desktop

Insecure or insecurely used remote access technologies – mechanisms that most security teams assume pose little risk – in reality offer an abundance of options for attackers to infiltrate enterprises. Many enterprises, large and small, have made huge investments in remote access services, but recent findings suggest these technologies come with a variety of inherent problems and few easy answers. Although enterprises have been providing remote access to applications for more than two decades, all too often the process is complex and cumbersome for IT to deploy and manage. Enterprises rely on an array of disparate hardware and software solutions including Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), Virtual Private Network (VPN) appliances, and identity management and application monitoring solutions. At the same time, typical network designs enabling remote access of enterprise applications continue to carry security risks in that broad network connectivity can significantly increase an enterprise’s attack surface.Throw a hostile foreign government that doesn’t need much motivation but has plenty of means and opportunity into the mix, and it’s a pretty dangerous landscape of IT threats out there for any organization—no matter how mundane your business activities or how low your profile are.Cyberspace is particularly difficult to secure due to a number of factors: the ability of malicious actors to operate from anywhere in the world, the linkages between cyberspace and physical systems, and the difficulty of reducing vulnerabilities and consequences in complex cyber networks. Of growing concern is the cyber threat to critical infrastructure, which is increasingly subject to sophisticated cyber intrusions. There is increased risk for wide scale or high-consequence events that could cause harm or disrupt services upon which our economy and the daily lives of millions of honest businesses depend. For these reasons, strengthening the security and resilience of cyberspace has become an important homeland security mission for anyone using RDP.

Homeland Cyber Security is a Must.

Minimizing the attack surface with carefully controlled access is an important part of the first line of defense. That is why Geo Restriction is essential for many customers.Among other amazing settings to reinforce your online security, RDS-Knight allows you to use "Homeland Access Protection" to restrict access to your content based on the geographic location of your viewers.Your users are located in USA, France and Germany offices. Why anyone should be able to open a session from China, India, Iran, or Russia?The "Homeland Access Protection", included in RDS-Knight cyber security Tool for RDP, enables the administrator to configure a "white list"byselecting the only countries that are allowed to connect to the remote server and access data. Connections from any other foreign country will be automatically detected and logged out.

You can use the RDS-Knight"Homeland Access Protection" tile on the interface to enable this feature and configure the list of countries that should be included in your whitelist. When you're done selecting the countries you want to block, click on Apply Now. If an end-user from a restricted country tries to connect, the homeland protection will block the IP address.In a snap with RDS-Knight, you protected your RDS servers from any hackers trying to open a session from foreign countries. This is extremely simple and so powerful. Just do it!
