Announcing RDS-Knight 4.2 – The Best in Server Security

Posted on June 5th, 2019

Following the release of TSplus Version 12.30, we are proud to announce the release of RDS-Knight Version 4.2. This update improves two of the core features that protect Remote Access Servers against unauthorized access. Read for more details.

RDS-Knight 4.2 Allows Efficient Remote Access Restrictions on Time and Location

TSplus 12.30 comes bundled with a trial of the latest version of RDS-Knight. Integrated with TSplus, RDS-Knight brings a comprehensive security tool set to effectively block harmful attacks and prevent security breaches on RDS servers.

Remote Desktop protocol is often the first point of attack used by cyber-criminals to compromise systems and sensitive information. Businesses need powerful tools to lock down their remote sessions and limit the risks. That’s what RDS-Knight does. Working Hours Restriction and Homeland Protection features allow administrators to control the time and place of remote connections. These two powerful security features are included both in the Essentials and Ultimate Editions.

With RDS-Knight 4.2, Working Hours Restriction has been enhanced with a new setting:  Administrators can force automatic disconnection of users when their configured working time comes to an end.

By default, RDS-Knight warns the user 2min before it automatically closes the session…

This means, that for a user who is supposed to work exclusively on weekdays, from 9AM to 5PM, RDS-Knight can be configured to prevent sessions from opening AND the sessions that are already open can be automatically closed after warning the user that they are operating outside of their assigned hours.

From the App dashboard, Administrators can see the related event and easily define Working Hours parameters such as the warning delay (by default 2 min) and message, the working times and the local time zone.

In the meantime, Homeland Protection has been strengthened to more aggressively filter any attempts to connect from unauthorized countries. This change constitutes a significant step toward an even more reliable and future-proof RDS-Knight. The feature‘s high efficiency is easily visible on the Security Event log: it now displays detailed notification for every blocked IP. However, it is also far less CPU-intensive!

RDS-Knight powerful Homeland Protection lets no forbidden connection pass through!

Management has been further streamlined with the new possibility to block/unblock any IP address directly from the Event log with a simple right-click. In the meantime, the IP list per Country is regularly updated to ensure the best response and efficiency of the filters.

RDS-Knight 4.2 includes many others improvements and fixes released in previous versions. Details of these changes can be checked on the change-log:  https://dl-files.com/RDS-Knight-changelog.html

    "We invested years creating DriveWare for the transportation industry. Our customers were looking for a way to run their software on the cloud. There were two options: rewrite the entire app for the web or use TSplus. The answer was simple. We chose TSplus because our core package ran inside the browser without any modifications. Remote printing features help our users print on their local printer(s). In addition, they can access their program from their IPad or any Android device. What more can we ask for? The support from the TSplus team has been excellent. I highly recommend this product."

TSplus is fast, improving connection speed thus providing an excellent resource for our clients to quickly and efficiently work with their data either via remote connection or in the office. TSplus has been reliable and effective, furnishing a virtually full proof option for a smooth data access environment.

    "This is a very easy product to set up and use. TSplus has easily integrated into my existing and aging Citrix farm, to expand the services offered and give new remote access options. With every update of this product I find more and more uses for it. The universal printing works so easily it is a relief when compared with what I have put up with in Citrix."
