Stop hackers from taking over your PC
The most dominant vector for remote access attacks is Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). RDP is a useful tool for granting authorized remote access when needed, but can be a loophole for an attack if not used properly. Remote Access Shield protects against such attacks in three ways:
- Detect and block brute-force attacks by counting unsuccessful login attempts within a specified period of time and blocking the IP address associated with these attempts.
- Secure known OS vulnerabilities and prevent RDP exploit attacks aimed at breaching them.
- Automatically block all IP addresses known to distribute malware by exploiting RDP ports. Our database is continuously updated using our AI algorithm.
