    You may need a network monitor and support panel for the company connections. check out Free Help Desk, Network Monitoring, and IT Community
    They have IT helpdesk, Network monitor and other apps for your need and that have options to allow devices to be connected to your network. And it's completely Free. Give it a try. Hope that helps.

    Really the only way to lock down the users and the network to prevent rogue connections. You would need to utilize a Domain setup with Radius for the Wireless, which has to be locked down, but is not the wise solution in a business environment, because it has to be set up correctly from the beginning.

    In a business, you want wired connections, with zero wireless access to your network for anyone. You do need to also look at the fact that you will need to be running a Server/Client system scanning anti-malware. Email would have to be locked down, so that any employee email has to go through a server that is set to scrub any attachments from outside the office. It can be set to allow attachments from within the closed system.

    Also USB ports need to be secured along with DVD drives. The mouse & keyboard USB connections can be locked in place with a unit that the user cannot remove from the computer.

    Now of course the even more secure solution is to utilize Thin Net, so that all the users have on their desks is a Dumb Terminal unit that they can only connect to the server that handles all units.

    You may want to block ftp as well.

    That is done at the desktop, domain and firewall automatically. No user should even be set as a Administrator, which is the biggest mistake with the majority of organizations.
