From within our private network, a small band of users have a requirement to access a 3rd parties network via vmware view (which requires relevant vmware horizon view client) installint locally. Would our internal security team have any valid reason for denying access to such a request on security grounds, i.e. letting a corporate laptop remotely connect to a 3rd parties network? What potential risks are there, if any?

I cannot see any reason why not, unless you do not want any secrets or documents leaving your organisation!

The View Client is connecting to a VM session on a server remotely, and only screen and mouse movements are being transmitted to the clients, so there is no fear of virus.

BUT, USB flash drives and local disk mappings can be used in the View VDI VM, so documents and files could be transferred, which could be seen as a security breach!

But do you Allow, Dropbox, Webmail, Google Drive, Microsoft Onedrive on site, the document exchange aspect is the same.
