    @Sathishkumar Singh

    Here are step by step to disable EAC from accessed from external of your organization, you still could access it from the internal of your organization. It doesn't effect the using of OWA: Turn off access to the Exchange admin center

    You can also install an Exchange 2019,then using Exchange 2019 as the Internet facing server, the new function "Client Access Rules" is more easier to control the access of EAC.
