eScan offers endpoint security solution carrying TSPM technology to fight against RDP attacks

With each passing day, the cyber attacks turn complex and enterprises find it challenging to combat against the assaults. Now, a slew of reports suggest that RDP (remote desktop protocol) servers come under ransomware attacks which can jeopardize the very operations of firms and organizations.
To facilitate centralized management of computers, organizations implement RDP and access these systems either through LAN or Internet. In order to protect RDP enabled systems from outsiders, VPN might be implemented but in majority of cases, administrators configure the firewall to open up RDP for the systems they would want to manage remotely. The pen-testing platforms such as Kali offer RDP Bruteforce and Exploit tools which are being specifically used for targeting systems with Internet facing RDP systems. Bruteforce attack would generate large numbers of Failed Login Notifications and are logged. Furthermore, the users are not even aware of the on-going Brute Force attack, since it is not imperative that the attack would take place when the user would be logged in and working on the system.
Now, eScan’s Terminal Services Protection Module (TSPM) not just detects these brute force attempts but also heuristically identifies suspicious IP Addresses  and blocks any access attempts from them and in order to safeguard the systems from future attacks, the IP addresses and Hosts from future attacks are banned from initiating any further connections to the system.
This has been known that attackers would try to uninstall security applications from compromised systems in order to cover up their tracks and stop the administrators from getting alerted about the breach.  eScan TSPM detects and stops these attempts too, moreover the administrators are also alerted about the preventive measures initiated by TSPM.
In the present landscape where attackers are trying to exploit every known weakness be it unpatched systems or inability of the users to maintain password hygiene, eScan’s TSPM would protect organizations from such attacks.
