Is it really that easy?
I really liked the article and a round of applause for that, but as an employee myself, I have seen many of my colleagues using anonymous tools to hide their online activities and when inquired the same about their usage of these things in office even when they are restricted, they rationalised it by saying that we suspect that our online communications could be stored and that is why we do it. Not a very legit excuse, I think.

BYoD trend
Very intresting article!

I believe that part of this is the result of BYOD policies in enterprise networks and the inability to control them properly. Enterpirses should reach a balance between security and productivity, not by allowing people to use their own devices without any supervision.
