Unmount BootCamp Partition for all users including Standard and Network Users

Hi, I am looking at ways to  Unmount the BootCamp Partition for all users including Standard and Network Users on OS X Yosemite. It needs to be a solution that works on Yosemite as some scripts designed to do this do not work and are designed for older versions of the OS. I do not want the Bootcamp drive to appear as a Drive on the Desktop or the finder as all Mac users can access the drive on a read only basis. Any data on the users profiles within the Windows bootcamp drive can be accessed and copied from the mac side by any user.

The aim is to secure dual boot Macs so that the Bootcamp partition is unmounted every time the Mac starts or users log into OS X. Hope this make sence as this is a huge security gap for anyone using dual boot Macs.

Regards, Aelara
