I'm curious how others are handling this. We are seeing more and more external parties (Vendors, Auditors, etc.) that want to plug their equipment in to our internal networks. Usually it is just to do some kind of presentation. Here at our data center we have an external DSL line that we just move from conference room to conference room and that gets them internet connectivity without them touching our internal networks. Lately these requests have come from remote locations that don't have much infrastructure other than thin clients and network ports. No DSL at those sites at all. How are you handing this kind of issue when someone from outside needs/wants to plug in to get network connectivity? A vendor presentation is one thing but auditors can live on site for months and, more recently, want to bring their own file server with them. We check to make sure they have AV software, that it is running, and that the DATs are current, but that won't prevent someone from running a sniffer or password cracker on the network. We are working with the network team to fence them of using VPNs but I thought I would ask how others are handing this situation. Thanks in advance. Mike.
