Love That Tech

BY DOUGLAS R. SWARTZ

I greatly enjoyed reading “ Telecommute Safely ” ( JofA , Aug.06, page 39). The step-by-step instructions, including pictures and different typefaces, were straightforward and easy to follow. It was informative to learn of the virtual private network (VPN) options available, along with the corresponding levels of relative pricing and setup time for each.

The article not only tells the reader the “how to” but also mentions such realities as managers’ slow but increasing pace in embracing telecommuting technology. It also addresses the need for companies to keep a handle on the security of their private sensitive company data.

I am most appreciative that I can view all of the JofA articles online by simply going to the aicpa.org Web site. I actually have a monthly reminder set up in my Microsoft Outlook to alert me when I should take time to read the latest JofA online articles.

Thank you for encouraging letters to the editor. Most important, please keep posting these free, well-written, informative and useful articles!
