How Are You Protecting Your Computers?

The way I treat wireless everywhere I've deployed it is that it's as secure as the internet, therefore you only get access to the VPN server.

In one way it's safer than the internet as people would have to be physically close (and places are usually covered by CCTV) but in another it's more dangerous as they'd have more bandwidth wirelessly and be less likely to be noticed downloading vast amounts of data.

Come to think of it as we only give access to the VPN server via wireless it's in fact more "secure" as via the internet you have access to our SMTP, HTTP, HTTPS, DNS etc...
