Add Access Control to Website

So this may be a strange question, but bear with me.

I am proficient at building Drupal websites, and I would like to build one for our department at work. However, the resources I need for building the website are not available at work (servers etc).

I can easily build one and publish on the web, but I don't need this website to be available to the general public. We have an internal network and intranet.

So here's the question: Is there any way to publish a website on the web, but have it accessible only if it is accessed from, say a certain IP range, or something else like that? I know that I can password protect the site, but I want internal users to be able to access it seamlessly, without having to login.

Your thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

I'd need to test it but in Apache you can use Access Control to allow access to the website from one address (in your case that would be the company's public IP-address) or from a domain or whatnot ...

So if you configure it like that normally only your company's public IP would be able to access the server.
