There are many possible solutions. For example, to protect laptops, a business can encrypt the laptop hard disk data using encryption features native to Windows operating systems.

This creates a controlled, secure, policy managed virtual machine environment on the laptop or mobile computer. The VM is created by the business and can be implemented quickly on mobile computers. Also, if the computer becomes corrupted, it's quick and easy to re-implement the managed system using VM technology. The VM environment also provides a controlled environment to prevent problems coming from home use or accessing the business network using a VPN.
There should also be guidelines; access, network, and security policies in place. There are so many I include only a few here:
