How Do You Restrict Access To A GSite?

By April

In episode 237 of Semantic Mastery's Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked how to restrict access to a Gsite.

The exact question was:

Hi guys, first of all thanks for the great value you offer. I've missed the last episodes but for a good reason, my business is growing and, in part, thanks to ideas and answers you provide here. I can tell you that the key is persistence. Execute and refine. It only take a few clients to make it worth. I've just landed a 4-year deal with a multinational corporation that found us via google ads. The thing is we now need to hire and train new employees. I wanted to develop a basic website with some processes (video & written) and exercises before assigning them any project. But I don't want to make the content publicly available. So, is there any platform/application you recommend to restrict the access? I saw google promoting their Gsites for training employees (which has great integration of course), but no chance to password protect it. Any other suggestions? Thanks and sorry for the long intro!
