I work in a small satellite office of a large corporation. They would like to change our routing structure so all our internet data bounces off their main NOC. They say this is to prevent intrusions and to monitor our traffic. My office would rather not have our traffic monitored and possibly have our performance degraded by bouncing all packets off a building 1000 miles away.
What are the reasons I can present to the higher ups as to why we shouldn't allow this change? I suspect performance is one reason, but I would to hear more if they exist.
