Can you restrict anonymous access in Confluence?

Essentially we'd like to open our confluence up to a wider audience who don't have JIRA accounts. From reading the documentation you can do this by doing this:

I have tested this and it works perfectly, but we have been challenged by our IT team that because we're using JIRA Studio this data is now avaiable to anyone over the web.

Is there anything we could do to control this so it wouldn't be avialble outside our company but wouldn't need a sign on process?

Open to all ideas and potential workarounds.

Atlassian onDemand is pretty secure. See for more details.

And if you can not get the vote of confidence from the IT team, you can always install Confluence, JIRA etc behind the firewall. You just need the downloaded version of those products.
