Control Data over RDP sessions

Dear guys,

Some of our users are connecting from home to the network through VPN connection and use RDP to access their systems on site. We would like to use DLP to prevent them from copying data to their home desktops. Is there a possible way?

Thank you

Re: Control Data over RDP sessions

Hi @it1024 ,

Thank you for writing in here.

Yes its possible from DLP end. 

When you take a RDP session of a computer, it generally has rdpclip.exe which is responsible for copy paste operations between host and client pc's where the mstsc is launched from.

So kindly create a Application File Access Protection rule to block classified data transfer from your organization PC's to local personal PC's.

Kindly checkout the below video for the rule and how the block is happening and how the copied contents are nulled out after pasting in your personal PC.
