Hi..I have a cloud server and I want to  run RDP on my server to access the machine and run apps on it. Do I need a VPN or is RDP secure enough? Can anyone please advice?
Thanks

RDP is secure on it's own. I have plenty of private boxes running with RDP open and just the Windows firewall.

As a basic precaution, you can just allow RDP access from your IP, or your ISPs ranges if dynamic.
