As more workers operate from home, a surge of attacks targeting Remote Desktop Protocol has persisted during the pandemic. To combat this increasing number of threats, TSplus Advanced Security has been enhanced to provide the most efficient ransomware defense available, in addition to other notable features like Brute-force protection.
IRVINE, Calif., March 26, 2021 (Newswire.com) - The TSplus development team is happy to announce more performant and robust ransomware protection for companies using Remote Desktop!
Why the Global Shift to the Home Office Is A Boon for Cybercriminals?
Because Remote Desktop solutions such as TSplus give the ability to remotely access Windows servers or workstations, this protocol is widely used in organizations today.
Numerous businesses had to shift to remote work to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, making RDP a popular target for cybercriminals. Attacks on RDP began to skyrocket in the spring of 2020, when more and more organizations closed their doors. Cybercriminals quickly took notice. A year on, the trend shows no signs of abating.
More specifically, ransomware attacks are still a very serious threat. "Ransomware is one of the top threats in cybersecurity," said John Davis, vice president of public sector at Palo Alto Networks.
Ransomware remains an effective tool for cybercriminals because many organizations are still ill-equipped to deal with the threat, prompting many victims to succumb to extortion demands and pay a Bitcoin ransom in the hope of receiving the decryption key needed to restore their network.
Due to this lack of proper protection and awareness, ransomware shows no sign of slowing down, and the average ransom paid to cybercriminals by organizations targeted by these attacks has nearly tripled in the last year; ZDnet.com states that this increase was about 171% between 2019 and 2020, affecting many businesses across Europe and North America.
Since phishing emails are still a popular way for cybercriminals to infiltrate networks, experts suggest that workers be trained to recognize threats. And with the right cybersecurity program, organizations can be sure to keep their data safe.
That's where TSplus Advanced Security stands out.
Install the Most Advanced Ransomware Protection for Remote Desktop
To combat the increasing number of attacks, as well as to efficiently face the changing nature of ransomware existing, TSplus Advanced Security has been enhanced to provide the most advanced ransomware defense available.
The newest version of TSplus security add-on (v22.214.171.124), released last week, brings important improvements and fixes for the best protection against ransomware attacks.
The feature's engine has been enhanced with more than 3,500 added static detection rules, making it an impenetrable wall to ransomware, whatever their nature or operational mode. The behavioral detection has also been improved dramatically to ensure that legitimate applications remain allowed for all users. A more efficient driver implementation guarantees a recovery session can always be opened in the event of a system crash.
TSplus knows that customers are expecting the best protection out there. The commitment to development is what keeps TSplus Advanced Security in front of threats instead of just keeping up.
Some of the most common attacks against RDP remain brute-force attacks. That is why ZDnet.com also recommends that Remote Desktop services be protected with strong passwords and multi-factor authentication, as well as security fixes to prevent attackers from exploiting known vulnerabilities.
All these features and more are included in TSplus Advanced Security's latest version and the other software by TSplus.
