One of our bloggers, Tony Bradley, recently discussed in his blog and on SearchUnifiedCommunications' "Reality Check" podcast the implications of IM and social networking on network security. What do you have in place at your workplace to address these issues? What combination of security and policy have you incorporated or plan to incorporate?
We have blocked all external IM programs including Yahoo, google, MS Messenger etc. Internally we use Live communicator. We have a set policy excluding external messenger use in our corporation and desktops do not have rights to download them. Basically users are informed from day one, "This is a company PC, not your personally owned home PC. Do not expect to use it like your home PC, it is intended for work only."
