So, I'll make this brief. I'm getting ready to propose this presentation/display management solution to replace a god-awful powerpoint-based system we use now that's prone to crashes and is overall just a waste of a PC since it's just showing the same thing over and over.
I'm not having any trouble with the website, but a coworker brought up an interesting concern regarding the system. The presentations, while generally not possible to access without logging in, technically can be because the preview function does not require logging in. So, I was wondering if there was a way to make the preview require login or just disable it all together.

Ed, preview is just for... preview. The player does not use preview for content playback. Technically if you did not share your preview link with anyone, then nobody would ever see it.

So is there no way to make it private whatsoever?

Ed,

That is correct. At this time there is no way to make the URL which contains the ID of a Presentation private.

One thing to note, is that having a Presentation ID does not get you access to a Company. The only way you could get access to a Company is to have the Company ID, which is not shared in the Presentation preview.

I hope that helps!

@Robb, that answers my question perfect.
However, is there any chance that further security for the content could be implemented? I'm not entirely sure yet, but I feel like this could be a major point of inquiry and perhaps result in the idea being turned down when proposing this to corporate as we'd have to modify the content in order comply with privacy requirements on our part.

I like this, I am changing this to 'idea' and voting for it.

Voted! The only thing I can think of is perhaps hosting whatever content on your local network and including in a presentation that way. You'd need some type of server setup on your network to host your content though. Depends on if that's a viable option for you? If you're using Google Slides, that's not exactly a great answer, as the Slides have to be public anyway (which in itself is a security concern if that's the train of thought). This would be a good feature for Rise :)
