VPN Access

By Menace65 ·
Before giving access to your company VPN to home users, consultants, vendors, etc., what type of information do you require from them? Do you just *hope* they have virus software, a firewall, their Microsoft patches are up to date, etc., or do you have a checklist of requirements that need to be fulfilled? We have users take screenshots of their anti-virus software (showing latest virus definitions), have them do a full virus scan and take a screenshot of the results, show a screenshot of their operating system and updates, screenshot of their firewall, etc. It seems to me there has to be a better way to capture this information (is this even necessary if we have the necessary security in place on our end?) How do others manage their VPN connectivity for remote users? Thanks.

The easiest and most unobtrusive tool I have found to use is Belarc Advisor. It will tell you on the top of the page that the MS Patches are Ok or are missing, it will tell you if the Anti Virus is up to date, then there is a CIS Benchmark Score Details that tell you where the machine is weak and what needs to be updated. I usually make sure that anyone using our VPN gets atleast a score of 5 or better. I also make sure that all our VPN users use Taceo from Essential Security Software (which is our application to secure thier documents while passing them back and forth between thier machine and our network.
