re: 10 Apps Blocked By Enterprises
IT should not be expected to provide alternative sites in most cases...IT is not the creator of these lists in most cases, it is management, auditors, external audits, or regulatory requirements that drive the block lists. For most of sites blocked there are no alternatives. For example: we block Pandora to eliminate streaming excessive data to each employee. A separate network or access method can be used to stream Pandora to a common music system in the office if desired. That does not degrade our Internet bandwidth for non business purposes. We could use the same method for Netflix in conference rooms, but not to desktops. We do provide more secure data storage alternatives other than dropbox, etc. for sensitive data.
