Helps prevent loss of data
Authored by: david-bo on Aug 17, '05 06:06:34PM

I don't think so. Why waste money on more or less useless security? If you are even the least talented you can easily work around obstacles like that, e.g.,:

1. Use a ssh client that supports whatever proxy the company is using and sftp the files to a computer outside
2. USB memory stick, zip, cd-r whatever
3. Steganography. Send yourself 'innocent' looking photos with data encoded into them.

You can't protect yourslef from all these methods, you can only be a good employer to whom the employees feel loyalty, responsibility etc.
