Remote desktop is not secure

Posted: 06-17-2008, 12:42 AM
I had a consultant give me the fire drill about how our network is at risk
because we have 2 people connecting via remote desktop to 1 server. These
are set in GP to enforce high encryption level. My understanding is this
is secure- and according to the technet article I read- even login
credentials are encrypted.
Is this correct? Is the contractor just trying to scare us to have hime
setup a vpn for $$$.
Looking for comments

Thanks

The sensible thing to do is use a VPN solution. I think that most who are
concerned about security would recommend the usage of a VPN solution in this
situation with a strong user name and password on the remote host machine
being connected to over the Internet by client machines.

Hi.

Well svpn is good, but if the server is setup right it would not be a
problem.
Its up to admin to secure the server.. if admin cant do that he should
change job.
