We are looking for WiFi security to prevent our office users from accessing any unauthorized WiFi network.

There are many open access WIFI network visible from our office & the users using office laptop are able to connect to those WIFI & start using it.
We want to prevent it. How this can be done. They should be allowed to connect only to our office WIFI.
How this can be prevented.

Make sure your users don't have administrative rights, but rather they are just "standard" users. Then they won't be able to change the settings you have set for networking.

You didn't say all which devices for which you want to prevent such acces.  Mobile devices like cell phones?  I think you can forget it in that case.  No different from them being in the parking lot or down the road at the supermarket.

But you did say office laptops.  So, what happens when they go to the local coffee shop or to the airport or the hotel?  Do you want to limit their access then?  If not then why is that any different from being inside the office building?

Perhaps the issue is:
- If a laptop is connected via ethernet to the office network then what are the security considerations if the same computer is connected wirelessly to any old public wireless access point at the same time?
