There's no personal use of ssh - it's all strictly work related.	
I'm sure because ssh (like most things) is blocked by default.	

Doing the MitM permits the gateway to enforce policy regarding	
the various ssh options and features.  For example, you cannot	
bypass the gateway policies by using port forwarding...

I'll acknowledge that; however, I know the team I'm in isn't about just	
spending what we're given - we're "lazy" in the Perl sense and more	
equipment just for the sake of spending means useless work for us.
