In recent years, remote access has become an essential component of many organizations' workflows. The ability to work remotely has increased productivity and convenience, but it has also opened new security vulnerabilities. Malicious actors can exploit remote access tools to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data and systems. This is where Calyptix's AccessEnforcer with Gatekeeper.
Calyptix's Gatekeeper is a patented work-from-home solution that shields ports and systems from the public Internet, unauthorized users, stolen AD credentials, probes, scans, botnets, brute force, targeted attacks, and more. It delivers a secure remote access solution for Microsoft RDP and SSH with 2-factor authenticated access control (2FA) for every network session. With Gatekeeper, organizations don't have to expose RDP or SSH ports or systems to the public Internet or unauthorized users, thereby addressing compliance requirements and facilitating the adoption of best practices, including many outlined by NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171.
Gatekeeper is specifically designed to address the shortcomings of traditional remote access tools, such as VPNs and Microsoft's RDP. While these tools are easy, reliable, and affordable, they suffer from poor configuration practices, a surge in critical vulnerabilities, and increasing attacks. The FBI, NSA, and DHS have all issued public advisories warning about the threats and risks to organizations that use RDP without adequate safeguards.
To mitigate these risks, Calyptix's Gatekeeper implements several strategies to enhance remote access security. These include:
By implementing these strategies, Gatekeeper provides a secure, accessible, affordable, and reliable solution to secure remote access via RDP and SSH. It eliminates the need for a clunky VPN client to set up, install & maintain, and avoids the performance hits or vulnerabilities associated with traditional VPNs. Moreover, it reduces your stress from vulnerability announcements for RDP, SSH, VPNs, and more.
In conclusion, remote access is a critical component of modern-day workflows, but it can also pose significant security risks. Calyptix's AccessEnforcer with Gatekeeper provides a robust solution to these risks by delivering a secure remote access solution for Microsoft RDP and SSH with 2FA for every network session. It shields ports and systems from the public Internet, unauthorized users, stolen AD credentials, probes, scans, botnets, brute force, targeted attacks, and more. By implementing this solution, organizations can rest easy knowing that their data is secure and their remote access workflows are efficient and effective.
