I would like to pre-empt Jeff's question brought to me privately:
To require authentication for ALL operations, which one can assume is
desired for a corporate deployment, simply do not wrap in <Limit> and
<LimitExcept> at all, this making the "Require valid-user" requirement
effective for all requests. You may refer to the Apache httpd
documentation for detail on this.
