Remote access to networks has become commonplace in today’s IT environments, as this access is mainly used for IT support, power users, and developers. While this capability can be provided in a safe and secure manner, it can also be deployed in a manner that leaves the organization at great risk.

When Remote Desktop is enabled, attackers can brute force administrator credentials, because you can’t lock out the administrator account due to excessive failed logins. With this access, an organization’s entire network could be at risk of compromise and data theft. In this podcast, LBMC Information Security’s Bill Dean discusses the direct risks associated with remote access to Windows servers.

Here’s what is covered within the podcast:

  • Security risks involved with remote access to networks
  • Recent statistics associated with Remote Desktop attacks
  • LBMC Information Security’s experience with remote access attacks
  • Ways to protect your organization from remote access attacks
