Why Block Skype?

Skype can have either a positive or a negative effect on the level of security.

Firstly, you do not have the ability to control content. This means that viruses can sneak into the corporate network and have access to confidential information.

Secondly, voice and video calls cannot be recorded. Even if you keep call log, Skype is unusable for organizations that require that these be recorded.

Organizations should decide whether the benefits of using Skype override these drawbacks. In some cases, the application should be allowed only for certain employees.
