Working From Home: TSplus 2FA to Secure Remote Access

Posted on April 15th, 2020

Security in an office is simple. Doors can be locked, desktop PCs can’t be removed. However, working from home or anywhere outside the main office brings new challenges. What options are open to organizations who need their staff to stay home and work remotely? Let’s explore the available methods for securing PCs in the remote workplace, and why TSplus 2FA is a great solution.

Passwords Are Not Enough

Passwords are the most common form of security and these are generally provided in two options – user choice or chosen by the organization. Either way, they can either be guessed or easily forgotten.

One method to prevent password corruption is to use a password generator tool which is frequently and randomly creating new alphanumeric combinations. The problem is twofold: when you have multiple systems this method can rapidly become a nightmare to manage. On the other hand, the staff has to find new ways to remember the ever-changing passwords. Their solution is often Post-It notes dotted around the edge of their monitors, which is not as secure as they might think…

Unfortunately, cyber-criminals are good at finding new ways to attack, especially in periods of crisis like the one the world is now experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic. With the right bots, passwords are easy to guess and steal from naive employees recently forced to become remote workers.

The Key to Secure Remote Sessions

Using multiple layers of protection is the most reliable way to make remote connections safe.  ​

The most common method consists in increasing security by allowing two factor authentication. The concept is simple: access is granted after two conditions are met; something the user knows and something he has. This is usually a strong password and a PIN code received on a personal device (mobile, tablet, etc).

2FA is the height of security – perfect for in-house and remote systems alike.

TSplus, a All-In-One Secure RDP Solution

TSplus is an easy to use, cost-effective Remote Desktop software. It is a great option for organizations seeking a quick solution to allow an entire decentralized workforce to access corporate resources without the risk of compromising data integrity. 

With its built-in HTTPS web server, TSplus Mobile Web edition offers a simple way to publish all needed professional apps on a secure web portal compatible with any web browser, making it easy for remote workers to work from their tablet, laptop or mobile phone. 

In addition to end-to-end encryption and web credentials, TSplus has developed “TSplus 2FA” to make sure connections to corporate networks are fully secured. This companion tool adds an extra layer of protection with a two-steps verification process: a personal password and one-time PIN code received on an authenticated device. Without these two pieces of information, the web portal can’t open a remote session. To know more, watch the video below. 

TSplus has numerous settings to ensure the security of both remote servers and users. The Advanced Security product line includes two other smart companion tools designed to make RDS Administrators’ life easier: TSplus Ultimate Protection and Server Monitoring. Discover the full range of our solutions.

TSplus 2FA is included as a 15 day trial version in TSplus set-up program. Benefit now from the 30 DAYFree TSplus Download released to support businesses impacted by the Corona virus situation.

    "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."
