That depends on what you are using the server for - it might be
used by various offices around the world, or to interface
with other corporations platforms etc. Ideally this would be in
a secured VPN or at the very least be limited by IP address, but
MS SQL admins are not alone in the pretend everything will be ok
from a security standpoint.
