Prevent RDP Credentials from being saved

Last Modified: 2016-05-20
Hello, we have a centralized SQL database that the company runs off of. Employees use Access as the front end and connect remotely (if offsite) using RDP. My main concern is that users are storing credentials, which can cause obvious security issues.


Is there a way to prevent credentials from saving in RDP? Users access from home, iPhones, iPads, and other non-company machines, is there any way to stop credential saving in this scenario?


We utilize OpenVPN for client/workstation connectivity. Only a few users currently have access. How could I use this as a gateway to prevent the credential saving scenario if users are remote?
Thank you in advance.
