Remote Web Workplace security

Hi,

Remote Desktop through VPN Vs. Remote Web Workplace connection.
This is my 1st post here, sorry if this has been discussed before.

Basically, I am 1 of 2 Sys Admins for Small Business networks. We have been rolling out SBS2003 severs for a while now.
I'm a little on the paranoid side when it comes to data & network security. 

My fellow Sys Admin has been pushing the 'Remote Web Workplace' as the remote connection option to our clients. Where I 
prefer the Remote Desktop through VPN whenever possible.

I understand the straight Remote Desktop has RC4 security which is rather weak. I dont believe this has been improved 
when using the 'Remote Web Workplace' method? Any I wrong?

I want to make it policy that Remote Desktop connections via a VPN must always be used before the 'Remote Web 
Workplace', whenever possible.
Am I being paranoid?

Thanks

Dave J
