We are in the process of getting our website compliance ready.
All that is left is to close most ports down - whilst still allowing ourselves access - and restricting others.
The auditors are suggesting whitelisting our WAN through a firewall to allow all system ports access by our organisation.
We are hosting the site on a dedicated virtual server with it's own IP address on Plesk 10.

At this stage we are not too sure what the best way to approach this would be.
We need to access the plesk control panel and the website backend remotely, would this involve setting up a VPN?

Thanks in advance.
