I believe our fortigate firewall controls net access. Access is based on your network user account login.

You can not log on to the network unless the computer is a member of the domain, so you have to log on to the domain. Once you are logged on to the domain the firewall restricts access based on your user credentials.
Example. Our lunch room computer automatically logs on to a limited user account for local intranet access. No internet acces to that user. I log on under my account on the same computer and I can access the internet because I have permission from the firewall / gateway.
