The problem is that you really want everyone to be using the Tor
Browser. While you can centralize Tor itself, there is currently no
support for an "external Tor" in Tor Browser.

Also, an attacker in the internal network could see the traffic from
your application(s) to Tor.

All in all, it is better to roll out TBB on all clients. With 50
machines, the company should have a way to easily distribute the TBB
archive plus a shortcut anyway. They should also think about an update
