If it was just Home Office which suffers from paranoid IT. I had several cases of my work code being marked as malware by some paranoia "solution" (which does exactly as much against malware as Defender does, except with more false positives). I had an API, which according to Microsoft documentation, works just fine, only work when started as administrator. I once had the whole of our worldwide IT chiefs meet at the head quarters just because I've used robocopy (which is such an evil and forbidden tool, the IT didn't even bother lock it with group policy because hey, since when do IT chiefs need to know what's available on a stock Windows machine).
