remote desktop services
One of the most challenging problems with deploying session-based services is controlling what software is running on your servers. When using a shared resource, quite often software is deployed for the benefit of a few, but it is available for all. It is tough to use the built-in tools to control which of your applications each user can access. Even more of a concern is the lack of control of unauthorized applications. Unknown applications, zero-day malware threats, and unlicensed software leave Remote Desktop Server administrators on the edge of downtime, data breaches, poor performing servers or malware. Whether you use native RDS, Citrix or VMWare. ThreatLocker has the solution to your unauthorized software.... Learn more.
It is the responsibility of the I.T. Department to control what software is running in your environment. The problem is more and more software is installed under the local user profile. While administrator permissions prevent software being written to the Program Files folder, it does not stop executables and software being installed under the users own profile. This software gets access to all of the files the user has access to, including shared network drives, local files, and potentially sensitive data. In addition, administrators have no idea what is running, leaving potential vulnerabilities, unlicensed software or even malware running.
While the I.T. department has no control over what software users are running, they are quite often responsible for unlicensed software, and the damage caused by this software.
