Re: Welcome to the monkey house
Consumerist mentality among those doing acquisitions has come to dominate virtually all work environments.
So many are simply addicted to installing apps, running down to the office store or Amazon, Fry's, etc. to buy a shrink-wrapped network solution--as if a home WiFi router belonged in an enterprise environment, and such.
And, they have no idea what it takes to do a security review in enterprise-level change management process. So, being utterly ignorant of the existence of change management and security-review processes, they simply never ask if they need permission--and they get indignant when they get discovered and have their stupidity blocked from and ripped out of the network.
