I want to restrict any user to send/share/copy any official file outside the office network on his/her laptop. Is there a way where I can block the access or a software i can use to create logs for any such transfer?

    Yes, this is called DLP (data leakage prevention) software. You can setup some basic controls with Windows local and group policies as well. We'd need more information to better guide you on that. Check out this security school I did for SearchSecurity.com on DLP technologies for starters.

    Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for the reply but how can we enable it from Group Policy.
    Let me explain you the complete scenario: We have around 100 Laptop users in our organization, they save data on their desktop usually. When they login from home we suspect that they can transfer the data on their email or connect localy to any other computer. We need to restrict that, we don't want any user to share or tranfer any data from his laptop via any source when he is outside the network. Even if he does so it should be logged somewhere.

     Is that possible?

    What OS/server u r using now ! What kind of environment/network u have right now. Guessing there is active directory (as windows based) also.... and u have to enable auditing on directory objects. However, this is not an answer/ proper opinion until more details disclose here.
