Does anyone have any suggestions for how I may overcome this issue.

Mmm, that's rough. But if you explain to your interviewers that your work was proprietary, they'll understand. You might want to create some samples though so you have _something_ to show. Also, for the future, be sure to ask your future employers if you can have a copy of your work for your portfolio. They don't seem to mind, but then again, I'm only basing that off of my experience with two companies.
