New Windows VPS Add-on: RDPGuard Firewall
We have released a new Windows VPS add-on which is the result of a regular support ticket request querying about the Windows VPS security.
There are many bots online attempting to brute force the Windows VPS Remote desktop password.
While, if you are using a strong password odds are rather low for an intrusion, the probability still exists. It is possible to change the remote desktop port, it is still possible through a network scan to detect the RDP listening port.
Therefore, we have released an add-on which is a license for the RdpGuard firewall which would detect intrusion attempt and automatically create a firewall rule which would deny the IP from reaching the server again. The intrusion risk is drastically reduced.
The firewall would also extends the protection to hosted services such as:
- FTP Servers
- Mail Servers
- Web Forms
- MSSQL / MySQL Remote Connections
It also introduce a dashboard of intrusion attempts. The License is a one time purchase which would be delivered through email and would be reusable on others devices not necessarily tied with HostStage.
