Remote Office Set-Up Concerns

Dear,

we are setting up the remote office in another country and will be using the Wi-Fi from another company and then VPN into our network when users are in that office.

What do you see as IT Security issues here and what would you watch for? What would you set up to ensure IT Security? We are only sing their Wi-Fi and then VPNing into our office network.

I so far foresee the issue with the maintenance, when they are having their maintenance windows we might not be aware of this. I am trying to put down all the issues/concerns with this set up of shared network with someone else.

Thanks,
HelenIT

If the remote end uses a decent IPsec client application (e.g. NCP Secure Entry), then the VPN tunnel would be reasonably secure. It would be the same as working from a remote location anywhere.
