Our partners specifically requested a secure, easy, affordable, and reliable solution to secure remote access via RDP and SSH rather than be compelled to use clunky or expensive alternatives.
Microsoft’s RDP is a widely adopted tool that’s been used by organizations for an extremely long time. It’s easy, reliable, and affordable. However, RDP suffers from poor configuration practices, a surge in critical vulnerabilities, and increasing attacks.
Remote access software is one of the primary targets for hackers. The FBI, NSA and DHS have all issued public advisories warning about the threats and risks to organizations that use RDP without adequate safeguards. This is not the best way to secure remote access.
Gatekeeper shields ports and systems from the public Internet, unauthorized users, stolen AD credentials, probes, scans, botnets, brute force, targeted attacks and more.
Gatekeeper delivers a patent pending work from home solution to secure remote access by SSH or Microsoft RDP with 2 factor authenticated access control (2FA) for every network session before remote users can access systems so organizations don’t expose RDP or SSH ports or systems to the public Internet or unauthorized users. Gatekeeper addresses compliance requirements and facilitates adoption of best practices, including many outlined by NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171.
Check out Gatekeeper in action (no sound) to see first hand how easy and convenient rock solid security can be for your team.
