It monitors the FTP server logs (or port) and blocks the attacker's IP address when the number of failed login attempts reaches a set limit.

Monitoring method for FTP protocol

Log files directory

Specify log files directory used by selected FTP server.

Traffic based monitoring

Monitoring via Traffic is the second option. This monitoring method works with any FTP server and uses more resources than Logs. SSL/TLS connections and username detection are not supported.

Traffic based FTP monitoring

FTP Monitoring via Traffic

The following traffic based monitoring methods are supported

  • WinPcap - Works on all Windows Editions, WinPcap must be installed.
  • Raw Sockets - Does not work on Windows Server 2008 or with firewalls.

Our customers say

"This sotware is really great. It's a relief. Because my server is constantly under attack. Thanks RdpGuard" - Joaquim De Sousa Marques

"Nice product. I used to implement something similiar in a low-tech and cumbersome manner via a script called TSBlock (not mine). This makes it much easier and is well worth the pricetag for SMB's." - J. Johnson

"Absolutely amazed at your product. We are a church in the North Dallas area, and I discovered this morning multiple failed logon attempts via our Remote Access Server. A friend suggested your product, so I immediately downloaded the trial. It had a list of about five blocked IP addresses in minutes, and that was enough to lead me to push the BUY button. Over the past 10-15 minutes the list is now about thirty with at least a third being international attempts to break into our system. Thanks for a great product. You may have just saved us much grief." - John Hallford

"Love the software. RDP on our Windows servers is just ridiculous. We would block it in the router but we have lots of old-time customers that would have issues." - Scott Hirsch

"Love the software! Makes it easier than tailoring VB Scripts!!" - Nick Brennan

"It's a great product - really stopping those RDP attackers :-)" - Dave, UK

"First of all: Your application is very (!!!) useful and I like it very much securing my 2012 R2 server. RdpGuard is the best solution, I found on the market and after 10 minutes of testing it I ordered the fully-featured version. :-)" - Carsten Baltes
