Enterprise Suggests Microsoft Makes Skype Easier to Manage

In its short life, Skype voice and video has already shown a tendency to trigger IT security issues. With Microsoft's recent purchase of Skype, some observers are hoping that the service will be improved to allow it to be better managed in an enterprise setting.

"For the enterprise and the government, the default posture is to block Skype," says Mike Lee, senior product marketing manager at Websense, alluding to what's been the longstanding effort to keep it out. However, that's not necessarily easy to do because Skype is designed to aggressively search out random ports to get through in any way it can.
