Re: Security and VPN

In general, if you're offering IPSEC VPN, you're extending the wire at your office to the home. Whatever policy you 
have for the office you now need to extend to the home.

Password access to log into the computer.
Firewall.
Anti-virus.

and so on.

Hi there,

      I just wanted to put this out there.  How secure is VPN.
Meaning, if my users take home the client and install it on their
desktop at home, and connect to the corporate network and production
network, wheat are we really looking at.  Are they secure or not.

      Two factor authentication would only help the authentication
purpose and to protect the user name and password ?

      How about restricting them to access, and how about worrying
about their home computer that can be effected.

      Has anyone been through this.  Any one give home users a list of
requirements that they must have before vpn can be offered to them ?

      Should there be some type of desktop policy installed on their
home computer, just to protect the company network ?  Any help and
guidance would be great

Regards,
Sohail
