Amen, brother!

That's our response to this bit of Chad Dickerson wisdom:
You can aggressively block services like these at your firewall, but you have to offer functional alternatives to remain relevant to the users you serve. If you don’t, your users will go around you. After all, they have real work to do, and if you can’t help them leverage technology to do it, they’ll figure ways out on their own.
Guy and I regularly discuss business people "routing around" IT. Of course, we are talking to IT folks when we say it, so our geek-speak is in order.

Chad also gets bonus points for drastically limiting workstation admin rights.

local admin, plus browser

plus a faulty trust model
(inside okay/outside evil)

equals unsolicited cyber auditing and ownership-from-afar issues that boggle the mind.

IF one ever discovers a half of them, score it well under par.
