"A computer network with a tight security should be
separated from the outside world as much, as it's possible. It's

others, a firewall and a router.
"On the assumption that the company's policy is not too strict
we often have an free access to this kind of devices. It can be
various internal services, databases, servers of whatever is
necessary to run a current company. What if, after work, when we
are home safe and sound, we still need to connect to one of those
servers that are not accessible outside the internal network.
