Sort of.

The status will always be visible in the workflow.  What varies is whether JIRA offers a user the transition into a status.

The way to do this is with "conditions", which you add to the transition - they can say things like "user must be in group X" or "field Y has content Z", and the transition to a status is only shown to the users when all of the condtions are "true"

I'm not that familiar with what conditions you have available for OnDemand - I'm used to server versions where I've written my own (either as an addon or using the script-runner addon).  But start by adding conditions, you'll find a few are ready to use straight away.
