A good VPN client (I'm familiar with Nortel) will enforce no *simultaneous*
access to or from on-VPN and off-VPN destinations.  But I'm not aware of
anything that will enforce that a home or portable machine has never been
connected to anything but the corporate network.  That would take TCPA
or the equivalent, which would not bother me if it's on the company's
machine and under control of the company - maybe the only scenario where
TCPA/Palladium-ng would be acceptable.
