Security Explainer RDP

Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), RDWeb, and RDGateway have legitimate uses for internal IT support. However, when exposed or used incorrectly, they can open organizations up to significant risks and give potential attackers a direct path to steal data and money from the company. 

The good news is many organizations can resolve on their own. Potential solutions include:

  • Switching to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).

  • Deploying a Firewall or Filtered Access.

  • Considering alternatives to RDP.

  • Exploring more robust long-term solutions with some additional technical assistance.
