I have a customer who emailed today and they were told by their insurance company that they have a major flaw in their system. That they are using RDP. I guess they used a port scanner. Anyway… Isn't RDP still an industry standard way of remote access? It isn't really Plain-Jane RDP as there is a third party security enhancement but the underwriters don't know that. I am just kind of curious as to whether or not RDP is still an active industry-standard?

Explicitly they are using TSPlus. Is there something better and more secure out there now then RDP?
