Disable WiFi, EXCEPT secure connections

Hello,
Currently we disable WiFi on our company owned laptops, requiring off network users to cable up for access. We force VPN connection to network before allowing Internet Browsing.

It there a way to enable WiFi for ONLY secure connections with a particular encryption? Maybe a GPO setting?

Basically we would allow users to use WiFi IF the network they are connecting to is secured.

Does anyone know if that is possible and how you might go about doing that?

Thanks Amy

Hmmm... I came across a MS article about expanding the GPO capabilities of a server:

but I don't know if this will have the specific policy you're looking for.
