Once a trade secret is disclosed, its value is gone so it is essential to maintain proper safeguards within your business and require all employees to sign carefully drafted nondisclosure agreements

A.its value is gone so it is essential to maintain proper safeguards within your business and require all employees to sign
B.its value is gone so it is essential to maintain proper safeguards within your business and requires that all employees to sign
C.its value is gone so it is essential to maintain proper safeguards within your business and requires that all employees to sign
D.its value is gone so it is essential that you maintain proper safeguards within your business and requires that all employees to sign
E.its value is gone so essentially you maintain proper safeguards within your business and require that all employees to sign

I want to understand why that is unnecessary. As I understood, require needs subjunctive.. Am i missing something?

Solution:
As per my understanding this sentence isn't of the form So X ... that Y or So X, So Y... that Z
Also, the sentence needs require and not requires.. you can directly eliminate B, C and D choices..

IMO is A.
Agreed with temp33 that B, C and D can be eliminated because the sentence needs require and not requires.
E can be eliminated as essentially you looks wordy.

Also..."require that all employees to sign" is awkward in B, C, D & E.

A for me.

Use "essential to" and verify that maintain is parallel to require
