Well i guess you can configure your server to limit the file sizes the files employees are downloading. Also i think you can restrict certain file types. Also you can probably chat monitoring software.

I'll look up more informative info for ya.

A cheap solution would to get a small router like linksys that has a firewall included. Good bang for the buck, and maybe your current set-up already has one. If so, then it may cost nothing.

If a low cost router/firewall solution does not work because of the limited content control capabilities, you may want to try a free linux-based dedicated firewall solution like IPCOP (http://www.ipcop.org). It will run on relatively modest PC hardware so you can use any old Pentium PCs you may have lying around.
