After years of doing development work directly on our shared development/production DB servers, we're researching a move to putting SQL2k8 Dev Edition on our developer's workstations.
Our company is currently in hyper-vigilant security mode due to forthcoming SOX & SAS70 audits and we're getting some pushback saying that running SQL on a workstation raises some security concerns.
Assuming that our developers are following policies regarding production / PII / PCI data, etc. are allowed -- are there any known concerns with running SQL DE on a workstation??? Even in the "only the most paranoid person would worry about this" category?
Are there any companies out there you work at / know of that prohibit DE?
