RDS-Knight 3.0 Detects and Stops Ransomware Attacks

Posted on October 18th, 2018

The TSplus Development Team is proud to announce the general availability of the new RDS Knight 3.0. As part of the enhancements, RDS Knight Ultimate license adds an amazing new feature which automatically detects and stops data encryption during ransomware attacks on RDS servers.

RDS-Knight-Antiransomware

In May 2017, a massive cyber-attack was unleashed and affected more than 300 000 computers worldwide. It was the initial outbreak of WannaCry, a ransomware software which blocks access to the most valuable victim’s files unless a ransom is paid. Since then, homes and businesses running Windows operating system are continuously threatened by ransomware attacks. TSplus provides Secure Remote Desktop all around the world, and developed RDS-Knight as a cyber security tool to make the use of RDS servers even safer. That is why it was paramount to add one more protection against ransomware.

RDS-Knight 3.0 Ultimate Provides Anti-Ransomware

In most cases, antivirus applications should quickly clear up any malware. But when ransomware is involved, they’re not any help. It’s a nightmare for a business: every hour of lost productivity might cost thousands of dollars. Fortunately, while ransomware attacks are on the rise, so are the techniques for fighting them.

We pushed the protection as far as possible to overrun the ransomware and immediately suspend its activity. Finally, we are confident RDS-Knight Ransomware will protect your data against these serious and always evolving threats.

– said Thomas Montalcino, Development Manager for TSplus add-ons line.

RDS-Knight provides a powerful cyber-weapon to prevent business from catastrophic events by removing ransomware at an early stage. Installed with TSplus, it will efficiently alert users as soon as a ransomware attack is taking place on the remote session. It automatically display the list of infected items and suspicious programs that have been detected and need to be quarantined. Only the Administrator can then decide to white-list them. With access to detailed information about the attack source, RDS administrators gain knowledge to avoid this type of threat and keep using TSplus securely.

Ransomware is an evolving field;  RDS-Knight Anti-Ransomware will evolve as well: it integrates the most common crypto methods as well as foreseeable changes for optimal protection. 

This game-changing feature comes along with five other strong protections in the latest 3.0 version of RDS-Knight Ultimate license :

  • Homeland Protection: prevents foreign attackers from opening a session.
  • Prevents Brute-Force Attacks: blacklists the offending IP addresses.
  • Working Hours Restriction: prohibits users from connecting at night (per Users or Groups).
  • One Click to Secure Desktop: provides a highly secured user’s environment (per Users or Groups).
  • End-Point Device Protection: restricts access per device (per Users).

RDS-Knight exists also in Essentials edition, a security tool-box that every TSplus administrator needs to secure RDS servers. The new release contains others great features and enhancements, detailed in TSplus 11.60 Release Note.

TSplus most recent releases (from the 11.40) embeds a trial version of RDS-Knight Ultimate. Otherwise, You can also download and test it on your Windows RDS Server directly from the website

    "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."

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."
