I would suggest your Site Rep double-check this with SI. We recently renegotiated our site license; an amendment to our License Agreement explicitly states that one employee using the software at work and at home shall be counted as one user.
A major caveat here, of course, is that your company may have a different agreement with SI; but, perhaps, your Site Rep (or purchasing agent??) didn't ask them explicitly about home use rights?!

I didn't think complaining to SAS would help so I thought I'd jot off
a complaint here, in hopes that bringing it out in public would make
My place of work recently renegotiated their SAS contract such that we
can no longer install the program at home, too, as we had in the past.
This makes no sense to me: as one licensed user (at work), why can't I
have the option of continuing my work at home occasionally? I live in
a large metro area (D.C.) where traffic is getting horrendous & folks
are starting to think more seriously about flexiplace arrangements
(working from home) to help alleviate the problem. With their more
stringent arrangements, SAS is being anti-environment!
Are the folks where I work who are negotiating with SAS
misunderstading their policies? Perhaps some people, once they've got
their hands on installation disks, make pirated copies and resell or
There's my howling into the wind.
