I never heard of any time accounting application that was WEB based that
was used over the Internet. Companies generally have such Web based
applications/solutions as a secured Intranet application NOT an Internet
application, which are behind the company's FW. So of course, company
employees are going to have access through a browser to such an application
as a company Intranet business solution. If the company had that setup any
other way, that was a very questionable setup to say the least about it.
And if some employee needed to access that Web based solution outside of
the company's Intranet domain over the Internet, they would need or be
given a VPN solution and allowed access to the WEB based company Intranet
business solution.
