        The Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems include DirectAccess, a remote-access technology that automatically connects computers to their internal network anytime they have an Internet connection. This gives remote users all of the benefits of being in the office; they have constant access to internal resources and their computers can be updated and managed. While DirectAccess provides many advantages over virtual private networks (VPNs), most organizations will use the two remote access technologies side-by-side. This document compares DirectAccess with VPNs and describes the scenarios that are most appropriate for each.
