Subject remote connectivity

I am new to IB/Firebird, and was wondering what the accepted method of getting through a firewall to the database server is? Currently we are trying to use VPN but the performance is extremely slow. I have read a bunch of articles that say to throw open port 3050 on the firewall/router and map it to the database server port 3050. Our network admin has concerns about the vulnerability of this to port attacks and malicious hacking. Can anyone help me out with some information on this? Thanks.
