Why on earth would you go from an environment *you and your company*
control, to one in which you have no control over and in essence have
no was of knowing who/what is looking at your data?

Hi,

I remember inquiring last year about VNC as a network remote
control solution. Sincere thanks to all those that answered. We
stopped the VNC implementation after reading about all the risks
related to the product.  


Our tech people are coming back and charging... again.

My question is simple is the latest version of VNC better than the
previous ones and should we allow our tech group to use it to take
control of our machines (servers and workstations)...

Merci

Marty!
