QOTD on Web2.0

We know that workers are using these applications [web 2.0 or "enterprise 2.0"] to help them get their jobs done, with or without approval from their IT departments. And now we know this is happening much faster than anticipated. It's naïve to think that old-school security practices can handle this deluge. Organizations must realize that banning or allowing specific applications in a black-and-white fashion is bad for business. They need a new approach that allows for shades of gray by enforcing appropriate application usage policies tailored for their workforce. This is a radical and necessary shift for today's IT security professionals. -- Rene Bonvanie, VP Marketing, Palo Alto
