Good Luck ...  We got shot down in Flames, no matter how we packaged it.

Hi,

We currently are allowing web based chat and instant messaging.  I know that 
there are lots of security issues involved with its usage.  The IT folks are 
telling me that it is a common practice in the industry.  I have a hard time 
believing this and this is one battle I would like to take on.

QUESTION:  DOES YOUR COMPANY ALLOW WEB BASED CHAT AND INSTANT MESSAGING?  If 
this was a battle you fought, could you please give me some ideas on how you 
won the battle.  Any good articles/white papers that could support my 
position?
