Almost every Windows computer in the fortune 500 company I work for has RDP enabled and if it wasn't production would grind to a halt.

To make matters worse I can't even run Windows updates on my laptop because the IT department has blocked it. I can only run updates at home.

Are they exposed to the internet or do you have to connect to a VPN first?

Oh yeah there are all kinds of firewalls, but you know there is always a hole somewhere. (Officially they've contracted with Amazon Workspaces to provide remote access which actually works pretty good, albeit slow.)
