Having set up a few of these, the answer is no. You can actually have more security with it.

With the SSL VPN, you can set it up to only allow access to certain apps, such as Terminal Services or file sharing or SSH, to name a few. With this kind of sharing, there is no capability for worm traversal.

there is also their netextender client that acts like a classic vpn with a lot less IT overhead.
