tcp wrappers on ose504+ - SCO

We are looking at using ssh to log in to our customers' servers thorugh internet. The servers are running SCO OSE5.0.4+ and in order to restrict the access to the login prompt I was thinking to use the TCP Wrappers. Since TCP Wrappers can be downloaded at no cost this solution would be a lot cheaper than buying VPN client enabled firewalls or building IPSEC tunnels, or using SSL VPN appliances. But how secure is this solution? Has anybody run into any security issues by using it? Thank you, Steve Camp...

    Tcp-wrappers blocks connections just as its config file says to do. Go
    for it.
