Company X has a rule "Don't watch **** at work"
Company X has a tool UTM which prevents watching **** at work

User A uses Psiphon to bypass the UTM and watches **** at work
Company X warns and then fires User A

User B uses their own phone and internet connection to watch **** at work
Company X warns and then fires User B

User C purchases a VPN connection that encrypts all traffic and uses it to watch **** at work.
Company X warns and then fires User C.


There are dozens of ways of bypassing protection - many have been created to allow dissidents from countries that have oppressive governments.

The fact is that users are ignoring your company rules. If you block this method they will use another. Stop the problem at the source - the user, not the method.

While Jonasz is right, APPI can still categorize PsiPhon

If the user's in your organization, he's playing at your turf and should play by your rules. that also means you're not really bound by restrictions. if he were outside the premises, you couldn't have done much about it if he had used ivacy, hola or any other vpn on his device. but since he's not, you can resort to a handful of options to make sure he doesn't, like monitoring the screen, installing tools in the office's pc and all.
