Personal Internet use at work out of control

ARS Technica has an article about how personal Internet use at work is getting out of control. It is also a liability, a time waster, and a security issue.

THIS is a key marketing point to make to businesses.

It gives you the opportunity to sell Wyse terminals instead of PC's; content filtering; privacy controls; monitoring software; reporting; and other managed services that are big value and high margin.

"Angry at being laid off?" the Risk Report continues. "Or moving to a competitor? Launch YouSendIt! and transfer the customer database or the next-generation product plans to an online archive like BoxNet with ease."

Also, do your customers update operating systems and virus software regularly? Run scans? Why not have a reminder service? Make certain that their is password policy in place too.
