Beware of Hackers Gaining Access Through RDP Connections

hacker There is a lot of hacking activity going on out there. We see examples of it quite often. If you allow outsiders to connect to your systems via Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), which many do, we’d recommend you set up rules in your firewall to only allow RDP connections from specific IP addresses. Further, if your remote users are only in North America, it would also make sense to set up rules to block requests from other parts of the world. You might find a significant improvement in performance (not to mention security) if you do this.
