Server 2012R2 VPN access for 80+ users

Hi I have got around 80 remote users who need VPN access to my 2012r2 server.

These are users that work from home or different sites, am I best to simply setup the server as a VPN server or is there a better way to do it?

Ive heard of something called Direct Access but never used it and not sure if that would be better or not.

If you need any more info that would be great.

Any help or suggestions would be great.

what do your users use the VPN for? shared drive access or other internal services? will they be using only company devices?

Its just to access shared data drives nothing else.
