As part of loss prevention and governance, I am looking for a way to block users from accessing Office apps (Word, Excel, etc.) on their personal devices.

I understand we can't really block them from downloading the app from the app store, but is there a way to prevent them from logging into the app using company domain credentials?

I assume this would be part of Azure AD conditional access, but I'm not sure where to start?

    You would still need to establish the compliance piece. When I referred to Defender for Cloud Apps , I meant as a supplement to a MDM solution like Intune.

    A true Device compliant architecture requires some sort of MDM to manage all the moving pieces and certificates etc...
