SV: Phone based VPN access

Hi!

The most immediate risk that comes to mind (assuming that it's a mobile
phone?) is that the employee might loose the phone or get it stolen. 

Whoever that finds the phone (or have physical access to it) can easily get
the username and, possibly, decrypt or crack the password.

What's the type of phone, brand and model?

Ämne: Phone based VPN access

Hi list members,

We have recently received a request to facilitate vpn
access via a vpn capable phone for an employee.

Are there any inherrent risks in facilitating such
access. Are there any known exploits or basic holes
that we should watch out for?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Regards

CP
