Do you think using RDP to access a work computer from home is safe? Even if you have the most up to date Anti-Virus and a fairly secure home network?

It seems odd that one would worry about the anti-virus when RDP is used to get to the work computer.

Is there something shady going on there?

Just asking a general question in the forum as it has been the case with quite a lot of work from home users during the pandemic. An Anti-virus would mitigate the risk of a malware or spyware being installed on the users PC, which could give the hacker a backdoor entry into the users work PC via RDP.

RDP or any remote access platform requires both end-point and host security constraints. As I mentioned prior, configuration, RDP Gateway implementation and multi-factor should be taken into consideration.
