Thanks.

Not possible to block the ports because of security reason.

It will take a long time and approval is require from security team.

Any other way?

You can simply disable the pcanywhere service to stop the working.

Uninstall the pcanywhere from that client if no require for access.

Not be possible to uninstall it because it count in our standard software list which approved by our management.

Enable the firewall service on that system, so it can't be able to get on remote.

Protecting a host computer from unauthorized access

Protecting a host computer from unauthorized access

 

When you set up a host computer so that others can connect to it, one of your primary concerns should be to protect the host from unauthorized access. Symantec pcAnywhere requires that you set up logon credentials for users who connect to your computer and that you select an authentication method to verify their identities.

See “About authentication in pcAnywhere” on page 208.

You can also use the following methods to help protect a host computer from Unauthorized access:

 Chapter

You can protect the host computer from unauthorized access and denial of service attacks by limiting the number of logon attempts and by limiting the amount of time that a user has to log on.

See “Configuring logon security” on page 213.

 

Secure the logon processYou can use encryption to protect the data stream between the host computer and the remote computer.See “Using encryption to protect data” on page 222.

 

Symantec pcAnywhere provides a number of options to help protect the security of the host session. For example, you can choose to receive a confirmation prompt before a remote user can connect to your computer, restrict control of the keyboard and mouse, and set inactivity limits for a session.

See “Securing the host computer upon connection ” on page 214.

For modem connections, you can use the callback feature as a security measure.

See “Calling back remote users” on page 216.

Secure the host session You can set up caller accounts to limit the access rights of a user or group of users on the host computer. See “About access rights” on page 217.

 

You can also hide a host computer from network search results (for example, to minimize a server's exposure on a network). See “Hiding the host name from network search results”

on page 215.
