SSHepherd is a cybersecurity software product which protects against the top attack vectors that hackers attempt to penetrate, RDP and SSH. SSHepherd helps reduce external brute force attacks by removing the attack surface so that hackers do not see the resource with their scans. As part of a Zero Trust initiative, SSHepherd also gives security admins the upper hand against hackers by monitoring all RDP and SSH sessions with the ability to automatically or manually terminate sessions based on rogue behavior. All sessions are recorded and stored for review and auditing purposes. Managed connections with SSHepherd ensure that users and processes are prohibited from moving laterally within the network. With SSHepherd, administrators can still use the native RDP/SSH protocols, key management products, and DevOps tools. SSHepherd is a critical component to a multi-layered security strategy.
