NIST SP 800-171 & CMMC 2.0 Control 3.1.14 Requirement:

Route remote access via managed access control points.

NIST SP 800-171 & CMMC 2.0 3.1.14 Requirement Explanation:

Routing remote access through your firewall improves your control over remote connections. This reduces the probability of controlled unclassified information being disclosed.

Example NIST SP 800-171 & CMMC 2.0 3.1.14 Implementation:

If you have remote VPN connections entering and exiting your network they need to be routed through a firewall. This allows you to better monitor VPN connections.

NIST SP 800-171 & CMMC 2.0 3.1.14 Scenario(s):

- Scenario 1:

Alice is a system administrator who manages the IT systems at her company's headquarters and two overseas offices.
