Is VPN the answer?

By fruitbat83 ·
At the moment we have 25 staff occupying 1 floor. In the coming months we will be recuiting a "development worker" who will be located in another office half way across town from us.

We would like that user to be able to save their work on our Server (so it's backed up) not on their local PC, be able to access MS Exchange and other shared resources from our Server. We have also had requests from staff who wish to work from home but still accessing shared resources.

Is VPN / Routing & Remote Access the answer?

Sounds like it

With a VPN solution you can control security while still allowing content to the legit users from remote locations.

Also look at GoToMyPC

VPN would certainly work, but also take a look at Citrix GoToMyPC. Of course it requires a PC in the office, but it allows staff to work at home quite well.
