Work from home VPN not safe on home router?
I'm getting set up to work from home and I have an existing cable internet connection with a router connected to the cable modem for my home computers. My work's IT dept says it's their policy not to connect work at home computers to a router; they must have their own stand alone connection and modem. I thought VPN was secure no matter if directly connected or connected to a router. They are suggesting I add a "business connection" separately for my work at home computer, but this is about 90.00 monthly and I've already heard my dept director is balking at reimbursing that amount of money a month. What gives?
