I had a different (but similar issue)... they didn't want me working at
home on proprietary knowledge.

I asked them what was the difference between me taking a computer home
and stealing all their info (if I was going to do it), and coming into
work and deleting all of their customer contracts (which I could do if I
was truly evil), or bringing in a minidisk and downloading everything
from the server and selling it to their competitor? I told them
"Proprietary knowledge is just that - it doesn't matter WHERE I access
it, and if I really wanted to, I could mess things up - you need to fix
your security so that even if I wanted to, I could NOT mess up - in
office or out."

I am now working at home with no problems, when I am able (sometimes I
NEED to be here).... oh, and I have increased permissions too for some
other jobs I need to work on <grin>
