The Global Shift to the Home Office Is a Boon for Cybercriminals
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. This made Remote Desktop a popular target for cybercriminals. Remote Desktop attacks began to skyrocket in the spring of 2020, when more and more organizations closed their doors. Cybercriminals quickly took notice. As of today, the trend shows no signs of abating.
Specifically, ransomware attacks are still a very serious threat. “Ransomware is one of the top threats in cybersecurity,” according to 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 to pay a Bitcoin ransom in the hope of receiving the decryption key needed to restore their network.
Due to the 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.
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 and efficiently face the changing nature of ransomware, TSplus Advanced Security has been enhanced to provide the most advanced ransomware defense available.
Advanced Security’s anti-ransomware 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 expect 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 keeping up with 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.
