RDS-Knight 4.2 Limits Remote Access in Time

Posted on July 3rd, 2019

As part of the newest V4.2 of RDS-Knight, TSplus Developers are proud to enhance a powerful solution for increasing organization’s security posture: “Working Hours Restrictions”, a simple and efficient tool for network administrators to control the remote connections.

Accessing business applications can be cumbersome and risky where mobile first, third-party stakeholders, and lateral movement attacks are the norm. Time-based policies are proven to enhance network security, as they are an efficient way to provide limited access to applications and give IT administrators more precise control over their networks. 

That is why RDS-Knight last 4.2 update focuses on increasing the efficiency of its essential “Working Hours Restriction” feature. With this protection, Administrators have the power to control Remote Desktop connections and usage over time to prevent abuse and suspicious behaviors.

Control Remote Access Over Time

Along others improvements included in RDS-Knight 4.2 released last month,  Working hours Restriction provides a great new setting: Administrators can force the session logoff when authorized time slot is over.

RDS-Knight’s warning before automatic disconnection is fully customizable…

This means that the feature can now be configured to limit Users’ access in two ways:

  • Prevents sessions opening outside of defined working times
  • Forces automatic disconnection when the defined working time comes to an end. The warning message is fully customizable, as well as the delay before disconnection.

The parametrization of the feature is easy: From the comprehensive and intuitive dashboard, Working Hours Restrictions can be configured to respect every user’s or group’s assigned hours, according to their local time zone.​

And Match Organizational Requirements…

It has been noted many times that employees extend their working hours to get entitled to overtime bonus and other such facilities. This is risky for two reasons: First, this can lead to server’ s bandwidth overuse. Second, when the offices are officially closed, there is no way to monitor users’ actions and they might as well enjoy their free time to steal important data and find breaches into the company’ system.​

Once all the right people have been allowed to connect to the organization network, the question becomes: When should the users have access? To bind employees to work only during a stipulated amount of time, it is necessary to control their access to their Remote Desktop. 

For instance, different time frames can be assigned for each user according to tasks or responsibilities. Thanks to RDS-Knight, an automatic outright ban in applied on any other time period. 

Every action taken by Working Hours Restriction is recorded in the Security Event Log, so guessing who doesn’t want to follow the rules is a piece of cake.

    "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."

    "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."
