A "Must-Have" Security Toolbox for RDS

RDS-Knight "Security Essentials" has been designed as an essential Security package to keep remote connections secure with fundamental protective measures.It combines the three core features that are provided with the full product RDS-Knight Ultimate Protection:

  • Brute-Force Attacks Defender to block any malicious attempt to connect. In few clicks, the Administrator is able to shield the RDS server. RDS-Knight monitors failed logins and automatically blacklists the involved IP addresses.
  • Homeland Protection to prevent undesirable connections from foreign countries. It simply restricts access to RDS servers based on the geographical location: only users with IPs coming from an area figuring in the "white list" are able to connect.
  • Working Hours Restrictions to close the access to the server at night. In a snap, Administrators can specify the time slot when users are allowed to open sessions.

Once a security rule is implemented, it automatically applies to all the users connected to the server.It is the efficient "turn-key" security solution that every RDS Administrator needs in order to protect Remote Access against hackers and robots.RDS-Knight Security Essentials Edition is generally available on RDS-Tools' store page, for a very attractive price: 49$ per server!It is also possible to download and try for free the full protection package offered in RDS-Knight Ultimate Protection Edition.About RDS-Tools:Since 1996, RDS-Tools has specialized in remote-access technology, widening its experience and expertise in deployments of all sizes – as large as 35,000 concurrent users.
