Look at all the latest remotely exploitable security issues and worms.  =
That should be enough to convince you to at least have a perimeter around =
your production environment.  Search the web there are countless articles =
talking about this.

For those that dont have some sort of intermediary between the internet =
and=3D
 their citrix boxes, do you allow direct access from the internet?
Can anyone give any reasoned arguments as to why the servers shouldnt be =
di=3D
rect on the internet? (only the ica port redirected from the firewall to =
th=3D
e server)

Is there anything else to avoid this, other than CSG/VPNs?
