Personal medical data has a high value in the cybercriminal world, so ensuring all data is protected as strongly as possible in this sector is even more paramount. In this case the attackers accessed a Citrix server using RDP (remote desktop, a remote connection protocol) and then used that to ‘bounce’ internally. A Zero Trust security framework to prevent this sort of threat can be limiting as it is so cumbersome to use. However, security is always king, and if a single-step MFA – with frictionless Zero Trust – been used to access the Citrix server, in this case the attack would have been preventable, whilst providing day-to-day security that is hassle-free. We hope Advanced manage to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
