Infrastructure Planning and Design Guide for DirectAccess Beta Now Available
Stephen L. Rose discusses the new DirectAccess feature in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, which allows remote users to access enterprise shares, websites and applications without the need to connect to VPN systems.

This feature will have a great impact on businesses and leaves us wondering what role VPNs will play in the future.

Richard suggests using a VPN because the connection establishes an anonymous IP address, which cannot be traced back to you.
