Thinking your more paranoid clients are a little concerned about remote access?  Take a look at RWWGuard 2011 that ensures that no matter where your clients access that server they can be assured of secure access protected by two factor authentication.  And, more importantly it’s two factor that your users won’t mind as they can use softtokens in cell phones to access the server.  The four digit pin you assign combined with the changing two factor value, means that you can assure your clients of access, and for MSP’s you can assure proper handling of turnover of staff.

Check out RWWGuard and combine it with Authanvil for secure remote access to your assets.
