Re: Uptime is not easy

Really? I would expect any company running RDP to fail any basic pen test - even the smallest of companies have accepted that it's not a practical option and accepted a VPN alternative that increases the complexity of brute force attacks via either pre-shared keys or certificates.

I know scans show open RDP, but a hosting company doing this let alone having any control plane functions directly accessible from the Internet is a disaster waiting to happen.
