The Problem: Many companies require that employees get permission from the IT department to download software. But that can be problematic if you're trying to download software that your IT department has blacklisted.Can you believe something this blasphemous would be published in the Wall Street Journal? My boss shared this article with me, and I was dumbfounded. To their credit they do list potential security issues, but how many people are going to care?
The Trick: There are two easy ways around this: finding Web-based alternatives or bringing in the software on an outside device.
Thanks, WSJ, for making my job even harder.
