Hello. We have a network of costumers with 2 mb links over ethernet and over VPN too. They can see our windows servers ( they have to ) to connect to our services. The question now is: If they are using M.S windows clients ( hosts ) that are connected to the internet, are they dangerous to our network ? Beside filtering traffic, to only give access to certain hosts what more do you recommend ? The servers are windows too. Are we in danger because of the possible infections of our costumers ¿? What is the beet approach to this ?

You need to have host IDS/IPS on the windows

servers and also network IDS/IPS at the point

of entry after the traffics are decrypted to

catch worms and viruses

is the connection on the ethernet a private network? and VPN is in used over the internet connection? if os, then, there will no security issue but i suggest you harden the network by having access-list that only allows specific services required from the hosts then everything else is blocked.
