Jira workflow - & permissions

I'm wondering if I can set my workflow so only certain users or groups can move an issue to the next step, depending on which step it's currently on? My management does not want the developers to able to advance an issue past a certain point in the workflow.

Thanks Christian & Nic. That was very helpful.
