RdpGuard is a strong defense wall against intrusion attacks (HIPS). This program protects Windows servers against all kinds of brute force attacks on various protocols and communication services such as RDP, MS-SQL, FTP, SMTP, MySQL, IIS Web Login, ASP.NET Web Forms and. This program blocks suspicious IPs by monitoring the log server and checking for unauthorized logins. That is, when an IP tries to log in to the server several times with different words, it means that it is trying to infiltrate, so by blocking this IP for a certain period of time, we will greatly reduce the possibility of infiltration.
These attacks are usually carried out by robots and automatically using several different IPs. Therefore, the software should automatically block any suspicious IP after several attempts with a suitable strategy. This program logs all blocked IPs and their blocking date and you can access this information at any time. Even if you have strong passwords for hosting and you are comfortable with brute force attacks, not blocking IPs that are working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is to the detriment of your server resources and bandwidth.
Your Windows server is unable to detect if the person logging in is a human or a robot, so it has to respond to all requests. This means CPU consumption, bandwidth consumption to load the login screen. Well, instead of one robot, consider a few dozen robots, naturally consuming server resources will increase dramatically. This is where using tools like RdpGuard will be not only a security option but also a strategic and management necessity.
