It's also required by my liability insurance, which isn't surprising. I'm sure that's to reduce the risk of me being unable to meet contractual obligations for a client due to a virus infection that destroys data, ties up my time fixing things, etc.
The more surprising requirement for the insurance was to maintain a firewall that not only blocks unauthorized inbound connections but unauthorized outbound connections from both servers and workstations. Since that's how all my internal networks are already set up it wasn't a big deal for me, but it was nice to see my insurer paying attention to things like that.
