RPD Guard is a targeted security tool for remote desktop servers that provides secure intrusion prevention for your Windows servers.
Hackers at large have changed their strategy from targeted breaches of specific systems to implementing ‘brute-force’ attacks, using malware that sweeps thousands of servers at a time, scanning for weaknesses and potential points of entry. If you take a look at your Security Event Log, chances are you’ll see an alarming number of failed login attempts from an unfamiliar IP address. This means someone is systematically scanning passwords for access to your server—when scans like these are automated through malware, it’s only matter of time before access is granted.
RPD Guard provides one simple-yet-critical function: It monitors the logs on your server and detects failed logon attempts for a variety of services such as FTP and SQL. If the number of failed logon attempts from a single IP address reaches a set limit, the attacker's IP address will be blocked for a specified period of time. It operates from a simple dashboard that allows you to turn specific blocks on and off. RPD Guard not only keeps you and your employees safe from unauthorized server access, but enhances connection security for those who telecommute, or otherwise need to access the server remotely.
