Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
First and foremost, compliance is a thing. As a personal user you may not have to care, but as a business the organization has to take special care when handling certain types of information. So we need to be able to see where that information is going.
Another reason is for IPS. Many attacks, like spam, change the locations from which they come from. But a particular type of attack is almost never going to change. There are only limited ways, for example, to exploit any individual hole in a web browser. And you can flag on that to a degree that is significantly more successful than simply being able to block IP ranges, which is about all you get if you do not MITM connections.
There are real, legitimate concerns and reasons to MITM. If you don't like it, don't do non-company things on company Internet and equipment.

They have signs on QEW that say 50km/h over = license revoked and car towed. They don't play around.
For us Americans, that's about 30 miles per hour over the speed limit. It'd be like doing 85 in a 55, 100 in a 70, etc.
That said, nobody's going to pull you over going 3km over the speed limit--so.
In Ontario, the signs say 100km/h = 60mph. This isn't quite true but it's a good safe number if you want to prevent speeding.
In Quebec, their signs say 100km/h != 60mph.
It's much closer to about 64mph. Bust people end up speeding anyway.
Would be worth a social experiment just to prove you idiots wrong

I didn't say Microsoft supported ALL standards, just that they support *some* standards.
