-Using local firewalls on these branches to filter outbound traffic to the core

-Centralize the internet access to have all web traffic go through a
filtering appliance such as a  Cisco Iron Port  or  a websense web

-Have an antivirus solution deployed over the campus.  I would
recommend Symantec EndPoint Protection as it provides good deal of
flexibility in what concerns remote sites ( replication, local group
updates provide to alleviate the bandwidth,  granular policy etc)

-Limit to the strict minimum the users with local administrator
rights on their machines.
-Prohibit removable media usage, thumb drives mainly. This, EndPoint
Protection can do.
-Prohibit local file sharing, system restore etc. (via group policy)

And above all, have a solid security policy written and approved by management.
