Something about that sounds wrong.
Anyone posting from your companies connection will be sending out their IP addresses with each web request, be it to a 
proxy or a third party.
If you wanted, for whatever reason, to route your traffic through a web proxy, so that your companies main address 
isn't shown, something like Squid on entirely different IP range might be useful.
As for Mac addresses, anyone sniffing your lan or wlan can find those out. If this happens, you've got more than just a 
small problem, however.
I'm still not sure what your aim is, here, though.
TO stop general data leakage, you could look into OpenDLP, though this would only work for your Windows workstations.
If you wanted to add a Mac component, you could code it, if you have experience in programming.

List, please correct me if I'm off base with any of this.

Sincerely,
Brandon McGinty

Hows it going security gurues.
 
My job is now taking on the security responsibilityes for my network. 
We have nearly 250 pcs on the network and theres about 30 macs too 
(ugh). I was just doing the network before this but the security guy 
got fired on the weekend after getting caught with drugs.
 
My boss wants to stop people being able to post their IP number on the 
internet. I was telling him that you have to worry about the MAC 
numbers getting posted too, otherwise you can get hacked using them if 
the hackers get those numbers. Most people dont really know thats how 
you can get hacked on facebook or some of the forums (especially php forums).
 
If I wanted to buy something to block these getting posted, what would 
be the best? Or should I look into doing it myself with linux?? Any 
good books you think I should read about this?
 
Thanks in advance,
Justin
