When it comes to IT security, almost all businesses using IP networks to transmit data will know that they have to protect themselves, and they will have systems in place to keep their data secure. However, this is often focused at the head office. For workers that are not located at the central office - whether this is a branch office environment or a remote worker at home - the question of security is a harder one to answer.

This Orange Paper is explaining a new approach for providing complete, affordable and easy to manage security to even smallest branch offices.
