reg opening ports and their risk, dell kace

Hi All,

im new to this forum, we are use dell kace deployment tool in our company, its alternative to sccm, most of them may know.

client machines  uses port 52230 to communicate with server , so far agent updates happen only in office network, we are planning to make kace agents communicate even if users are connected to home/public networks. I just want to know whats the risk in opening ports and opening dell kace port 52230  and making it accessible from public networks?
