Making everyone use a proxy server for internet access at least means
you have a record of what people are doing
which is often enough of a deterrent in itself, even if they are easy
to circumvent. This often prevents viruses phoning home.
However using proxy servers (or any other security measures) brings a
level of technical inertia as you will spend lots
of time configuring tools to use them and in some cases miss out on
certain tools altogether.

Ultimately you have to trust people if they work for you, if thats not
happening then it needs sorting for other reasons
than just security.
