Controlling? No, it is reality.
Sounds like somebody really hates it when they cannot check Facebook or play Farmville at work...You are at w-o-r-k. The tools (computers, servers, Internet connection) are provided to do your j-o-b. The IT Department is doing their job. At the end of the day, when everyone has done their respective jobs, there is a profit and you have a job tomorrow. When a worker inadvertantly brings in a virus on a USB drive or if they are intent on circumventing the "Controllers", the entire network is threatened and if it goes down, work is interrupted, profits are lost and tomorrow, everyone could be unemployed. Mitigating threats and controlling network systems are a matter of survival.
