With the shift of the workforce to home, many IT departments are trying to make do by exposing RDP over the internet. Braintrace has observed over the last month an increase of 7,000% in port 3389 sessions over the internet. Other IT departments are under the misconception that exposing RDP on non-standard ports will keep them safe from attack. Trust us, hackers are continually scanning external ports, and try RDP on every non-standard port they find open.
With a distributed workforce, there are many moving parts that executive management must consider. The first among them is the risk of exposure to confidential information that exists in a remote setting. At home, or at a remote location, there is a long list of external factors that can result in confidential information exposure. Braintrace’s Security-as-a-Service allows organizations to have confidence that their employees are accessing data securely.
