TSplus Advanced Security V5 Offers Ransomware Protection

The TSplus development team has released a more robust ransomware protection solution for companies using Remote Desktop (RDP).

Numerous businesses shifted to remote work to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic, making RDP a popular target for cybercriminals. Attacks on RDP began to skyrocket last spring when more organizations closed their doors. Cybercriminals took notice. A year on, and the trend shows no signs of abating.

Ransomware remains an effective tool for cybercriminals because many organizations are still ill-equipped to deal with the threat, prompting many victims to succumb to extortion demands and pay a Bitcoin ransom in the hope of receiving the decryption key needed to restore their network.

Due to this lack of proper protection and awareness, ransomware shows no sign of slowing down, and the average ransom paid to cybercriminals by organizations targeted by these attacks has nearly tripled in the last year. ZDnet.com states this increase was about 171 percent between 2019 and 2020, affecting many businesses across Europe and North America.

Since phishing emails are still a popular way for cybercriminals to infiltrate networks, experts suggest that workers be trained to recognize threats. And with the right cybersecurity program, organizations can be sure to keep their data safe.

To combat the increasing number of attacks and to face the changing nature of ransomware existing, TSplus Advanced Security has been enhanced to provide the most improved ransomware defense available.

The latest version of TSplus security add-on (v5.3.3.15), brings important improvements and fixes for the best protection against ransomware attacks.

The feature’s engine has been developed with more than 3,500 added static detection rules, making it an impenetrable wall to ransomware, whatever their nature or operational mode. Behavioral detection has been improved to ensure that legitimate applications remain allowed for all users. A more efficient driver implementation guarantees a recovery session can be opened in the event of a system crash.

Some of the most common attacks against RDP remain brute-force attacks. That is why ZDnet.com recommends that RDP services be protected with strong passwords and multi-factor authentication, as well as security fixes to prevent attackers from exploiting known vulnerabilities.

All these features and more are included in TSplus Advanced Security’s latest version and the other software by TSplus.
