at work we have a Citrix web interface that allows us to access our network shares, our outlook email client, and even launch office 2010 products like excel, and word.
Or we have a VPN client ( Cisco Anyconnect ) that you can install on your home personal computer, then you could remote into your work computer, and it's like you're sitting at your computer at work.
So I was wondering, which method is more secure?
Also would both methods be vulnerable to the scenario of, if your home pc has a virus, couldn't either method potentially mean that the virus could affect a work computer? Because the Citrix method lets you access your network shares, and the files on the network share could become infected. and the VPN method could affect your work pc.
