Access Control

Well... speaking of software, I don't seem to recollect any, But, as far as your situation is concerned, its more of a company policy problem. You can keep a 'trusted' set of machine's ipaddresses/MAC-Addresses in your companies' firewall software, the documents can be kept on a single central storage (docuemnt-server) and only those people with a valid ip/MAC address can access stuff from this machine.
this can be achieved by simple firewall rules, allowing the traffic to the document-server from particular set of machines only.
