Study: Users will route around firewalls

Application developers are making it easy for users to negate corporate firewalls, and users are happily taking advantage of this, while corporate IT networks are constantly playing a cat and mouse game with these users.
A lot of the risks detailed in this report could be managed rather easily by giving users access to a comparable set of approved tools.
I've always been of the opinion that IT needs to work with users instead of trying to "control" them. One too many "No!" and a user will find his/her own way for getting things done.
