But Forrester says it found 41 percent of businesses it surveyed are now blocking access to their networks with employee-owned Macs, a situation it says must end.

Any company that handles privileged customer information that could be used for identity theft and lets employee owned compters onto it's network is eventually going to pay dearly for it.

Forrester Research last week recommended corporate IT departments let workers use Macs on their networks because these employees are more likely to be power users, the ones working longer hours, being more productive and making more money.

Yeah, sure.

“Stand in the way and you will eventually get run over,” Forrester says.

It was that way for PCs in the early years. I designed and coded for mainframes and some of the managers would sneak PCs into their departments and start doing their own thing. The IT dept was livid when they found these, but the managers would not be suppressed - it was just too easy for the users to get what they needed with the PCs.

I think if employees want to use Macs, then there should be some accommodations made for them with company-provided machines and specific terms of use.

My own company has both Macs and PCs, and we are starting to incorporate iPads into the workflow for those who are often on the road.
