I know that I've more than once worked in places that have a strict
policy of not allowing consultants (or employees) to install
software from the network without a close security review.

And more than once been at such places where there's no direct
internet connection, no Web browsing or ftp or ssh etc etc.,
on the production machines, and sometimes not on the development
machines either.

The danger of people riding high horses is it hurts more when
they fall off ;-)
