RDS-Knight Further Integrates TSplus Remote Desktop Features

Posted on August 27th, 2019

The development team at RDS-Tools have just announced a new update for their powerful security program, RDS-Knight. Installed on servers alongside Remote Desktop software, it efficiently protects Remote Users and the servers they are connected to from Brute-force attacks. It’s even more powerful when used as an add-on to TSplus Remote Access solution. This new release strengthens the integration of the Defender with TSplus’ major feature: the web applications portal.

TSplus provides Remote Desktop and application publishing tools that can be accessed through the web on the TSplusWeb Portal. While it’s a great way for organizations to make business apps available from any device using just a web browser, any form of remote access comes with inherent risks.

In fact, Remote desktop connections are a primary vector for Brute-Force attacks: Hackers use automated bots to generate hundreds of thousands of passwords per minute and eventually guess the right credentials. It’s one of the oldest tricks to force access to the server! Once they’re inside, malicious people can easily steal precious information or destroy an entire system. Even an unsuccessful brute force attack can have negative performance impacts on a business.

RDS-Knight 4.2 integrated with TS plus ensures high protection against brute-force attacks even on the Web Portal.

RDS-Knight Prevents Brute-Force Attacks on Web Portal

RDS-Knight offers up to six features to secure RDS servers, including an efficient Brute-Force Attacks Defender.

With this protection, any malicious attempt to open a user session, whether via RDP or HTML5 Remote Client, is detected and prevented before it becomes a problem. RDS-Knight monitors logins attempts and automatically blacklists the offending IPs after several failures (number to be determined by the admin). Administrators can easily manage this list and white-list IPs that are known as inoffensive with a simple right-click action.

Although RDS-Knight’s great capabilities can be used with any Remote Desktop application, it brings the best security set when associated with TSplus.

The latest 4.2 release brings stronger protection to TSplus with the integration of an additional setting: the new “Lockout” security feature, which was introduced with the TSplus12.40 release and temporarily keeps the user’ session locked after several login failures on the Web Portal. RDS-Knight now records all these attempts and notify the administrator with a “Lockout” event on the Security log.

With the new “Lockout” event, administrators can easily review who’s responsible for using incorrect usernames on the TSplus’ web portal

Administrators can quickly and easily review who’s responsible for using incorrect user names. Combined with the Brute-Force Defender, it’s a very efficient way to spot attackers who try to connect with the same IP using different user names. ​

And enjoy the best protection for your RDS servers. 

TSplus trial version also includes the most updated and full-featured edition of the security add-on.

    "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."

    "The TSplus RDP application has enabled our company to create a whole new business division. We've created Software as a Service for our customers that utilize smart phones, tablets, Windows and Mac based computers. We started with a single server and have grown to 10 servers with over 550+ simultaneous log ins. The software has been rock solid for the past two years. Technical support is superb, making TSplus the total RDP solution at an extremely affordable price!"

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."
