TruGrid SecureRDP – Safest and Fastest “Work from Home” solution

TruGrid SecureRDP is the simplest way to secure access to RDP and VDI computers without VPN

The freedom to work from anywhere often requires connecting to remote desktops, VDIs and servers. Since it is built into Windows, Microsoft RDP is one of the most widely-used methods for remote work. As a result, open RDP ports are a rich target for hackers. Security Organizations estimate that there are nearly 11 million RDP ports open to hacker attacks, and the FBI reports that hackers are brazenly attacking unprotected RDP ports with stolen credentials. TruGrid SecureRDP makes your RDP and VDI computers invisible to hackers.

There are many ways to secure access to Windows computers, including VPN connections, RD Gateway implementations, and various third-party solutions. All of these solutions vary in their effectiveness, cost, and complexity. TruGrid SecureRDP is simple, secure, and cost-effective.

TruGrid SecureRDP enables secure access to Windows computers and supports the following use cases:

  • Safely connect employees to their Windows computers from anywhere
  • Eliminate threat of spreading ransomware via VPN connections to Office
  • Implement the safest and fastest “Work from Home” solution
  • Stop cost & pain of multiple add-ons (VPN+MFA+RDP) with one solution
  • Help IT Admins create Virtual Desktop access in a matter of minutes
  • Replace Windows RD Gateway with a system with built-in 2FA
  • Help IT Admins quickly secure RDP and VDI without touching firewalls
