How are our 'Black times' and Remote desktop protection related?

Time is one of the entities that is extremely of the essence, it is, it has been, and it will be in any aspect of existence, specifically in the cyber world, many a cyber-interaction is time-sensitive, but it gains an extra air of sensitivity when it becomes a matter of cyber security, as it can mean losing your intellectual property in less than a minute if you leave your remote desktop –exchanged data alone with the potential hacker. What you can do is use SUNFIREWALL 'black times' option to block entry to your RDP port for any chunk of time you know or predict you won't be using your system ,or your RDP might come under hacking attempts, which can boost your RDP protection by multiple times. This way you can rest assured that while you are away, no one can even try to crack your username and password of 3389 port.


Why is the relationship between black times and RDP protection vital?

When you and your team, probably scattered in different geographies, are awake and working, if a cyber-threat like a brute force attack is launched against you, through the information in the black country event log you can monitor it live, track it through its GPS location, Its country, the ISP, and time zone(all detailed in brute force feature page) and not only be alert about it, but if need be, immediately start taking action against it, like pursuing legal or security action using the geometric information. But when you are off duty, off the clock, away from your system, awake or asleep, your system can't be helped but be more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. The best things you can possibly do is to "black times" your remote desktop port in any time span, leaving it unattended you may perceive as a threat to your RDP security.

How does sun firewall 'black times' work in RDP protection?

There are three scenarios where you would want to specify a 'black times' and remote desktop protection will be at its highest:
Black times

'Black times' Permanent, predictable time slots according to your schedule

There are those times when you know you will not be awake and alert , at your system, which we have named profiles, they are regular and predictable, like breakfast time, lunch break, bed time, weekly meeting time, and so forth. You choose the profile , you set the starting and stopping point, once, and you push add and it becomes a permanently blocked time slot on your remote desktop port 3389, meaning it will always be there unless you remove it manually using the cross next to the profile name.

The third scenario is the unpredictable times, when suddenly you are called in to meet a drop-in client, or you have to take a long phone call, in such scenarios you only select a stopping time, like one hour from now, 30 minutes from now, even 1 minute form now, and block your RDP port for that specific period, which will expire on its own when that time span is up.
