Security for remote branches with VPN
Posted on 2012-08-29
I have been given a project on connecting our remote branches to the main branch. Other than VPN connectivity what other steps shall I consider to make the main branch bulletproof? The main branch has the corporate antivirus, etc but I am not so sure if the remote branch are that 'clean'. My concerns is basically what steps can I take to ensure that problems (virus, malware, etc) from the remote branch can be stop or detected before it transfer over to the main branch via VPN and how to secure access on the main branch network to ensure that users from other branches only have access to certain server? If possible at all.
