Yes, you can set authentication for this.

Login to SEPM

Clients page

Select your relevant group

Policies tab

Under Settings select General Setting

Security Settings tab

Check the box for "Require a password to stop the client service"

Click OK and once the client pickd up the policy change, run smc -stop and it will ask for the password
