No matter which protocol I'll use, I will do through a SSH tunnel or
VPN. Now, even remote desktop connections are done by an SSH tunnel with
client private keys. The problem is not security, but performance.

I don't know why, but standard dataware controls generate a lot of
traffic. Perhaps it is a problem of bad application design, but things
that work properly in a LAN are almost unusable in a WAN.
