The Technology Tech Leaders Fear the Most

clipped from
You know that cool Web site you found or the device that makes you more productive? Better not bring it to the office: The majority of corporate tech leaders say that these tools don’t belong in the workplace.
That’s according to CIO Magazine, which found that 54% of the 311 tech leaders it surveyed said that technology designed for consumers was inappropriate for corporate use.
Here are the top nine
Voice-over-the-Internet software
Online productivity software. This surprised us, but software like Google Apps and Zoho
Digital cameras
Remote storage
Social-networking Web sites. Ten percent of tech leaders are frightened by sites like MySpace and Facebook.
Instant Messaging. Online chat is a large enough security threat that 11% of tech leaders said it was their biggest fear.
Web-based email accounts. Gmail, Yahoo Mail and Hotmail topped the list
Portable storage devices. A runaway winner, devices like USB drives were the biggest fear for 43% of tech leaders.
