We provide a Sonicwall SSL vpn portal for personal computer remote access (we've disabled the vpn capabilities for home 
users). Remote access on the sonciwall is limited to OWA and intranet, some file shares, and terminal services for 
everything else. Employees that have been given campus owned laptops can use a vpn client to connect back to the 

Patch management on all our campus computers is done with a combination of active directory GPO deployment and WSUS.

Subject: [SECURITY] Laptop Security

We are wondering how everyone handle security on their laptops.

Topics like:
        Patch Management on the laptop
        How do you handle access to network resources (file/email/database) - Do you make them use an VPN client?
        Do you allow them to store data on their laptop?
        Do you use any type of policies for these users?

We are looking for suggestions and ideas.

Thanks in advanced,
