Big Surprise: Employees Abuse Internet

"FaceTime Communications says employee Web 2.0 usage in corporate networks has exceeded IT Managers estimates by over 10 times. The company has cited actual network data from usage of apps like Instant Messaging,IPTV, VoIP and Social Networking...

"The company collected traffic data from the USG units deployed in web based companies around the world and compared it over the data (the amount of Web 2.0 applications in the establishment) they had requested from the IT Managers in those companies. One third of the managers estimated the number at less than eight. In reality, FaceTime's actual network data had shown an average of 49 Web 2.0 applications installed across all reporting locations.

"According to the company, the reason for such a rise in Web 2.0 apps is that employees are under the impression that they have the right to download and use any app available to them to make their jobs easier."
