Securing the Sysvol Share - Active Directory 2012

Experts,

I was wondering if there is a way to secure or Remove the Sysvol share from Windows 2012 Active Directory.  My end users are not tech savy, but it is pretty scary to see that anyone in my network can \\Myserver\sysvol and see the share, access and change.

Are there any recommendations that I can use so that my end users can not see this share without impacting my brand new installation of windows 2012 active directory?

Thank you
