Are Proxy Anonymizers Putting Your Enterprise in Peril?

Like many modern threats to enterprise security, the use of proxy anonymizers is largely part of a behavioural issue. Chances are, your company deploys web filters to fight off the threats lurking in cyberspace. And chances are, some of your employees have no trouble bypassing them by accessing web pages hosting proxy anonymizers, simple scripts that give surfers a way to get to sites that are officially off-limits. With so many new ones being created every day, ordinary filtering technology based on URL blocking just can't keep up. And because they don't raise red flags in log files the way unapproved sites do, they elude easy detection by IT security staff.
