Remote Access Problem

Hello list,

 We have a sub-contractor that develops software in his own lab, not in our
 However, the computers in his lab are controlled by us, connected to our
Active Directory, and 
   the developers are logging using smart card windows authentication.

The security people raised a concern that a developer can copy the disk
image and log on
  using his smart card from a different computer, outside the lab.

Is there a way to overcome this issue ? example: tight the system to some
physical attribute of the compute ?

We do take care of regular application level backup so we are willing to
"pay the price" and reinstall the 
   operating system etc. in case that the hardware will fail.
