one way is VPN to the office network and then use VNC but it is a lot of hassle.

webex, logmein and teamviewer will do for you. we use logmein, it is better of the other two.

If I'm looking to use RealVNC Enterprise edition will I need to install the client on our Windows 7 systems and our Mac OS X systems?

You'll need to install the server on the Macs and the clients on your Windows 7 systems.

Yes, sorry I missed your post.  The server sits on the machines you want to connect to.  The client is what you connect from.

I use RealVNC extensively on my Windows systems and it works very well.

If you mean the built-in VNC that you enable through Screen Sharing, it's unencrypted.  You can use the free VNC clients to connect to that, but I don't recommend it unless all the systems are behind the same firewall and on the same secured subnets.

The reason you purchase RealVNC or Apple Remote Desktop is to get the encryption.
