Site-to-Site is a vpn client. You would need to be much more specific about the technologies you are considering and your scenario in order to get a useful answer. – Caleb Jul 20 '11 at 10:35

If you want something that's easy and secure for your remote office then I would always suggest a site-to-site VPN is the preferred option.

Effectively you're extending your network onto both sites, with the users not having to worry about special configuration settings on their devices and their devices gaining any/all benefits of your LAN while on the network (e.g. AV and OS updates from any local update server (well "local" is perhaps the wrong word as its a remote site, but I mean a service that your business controls), centrally managed policy settings, etc, filtered web proxy servers if you use them, etc.

I'd personally only consider a client VPN solution for people who are working from home or who travel from place to place for the business.
