Blocking all IPs is hard to do, there are a lot of TeamViewer servers ...
Blocking the EXE itself is more promising, though easy to circumvent.
Anything else requires to analyze the traffic - very difficult, in particular with SSL.

This page has a detailed explanation of one user's approach, which also short-circuits TeamViewer's fallback strategy of tunneling using port 80.

However, as Qlemo points out above, if the application now tries to circumvent DNS blocking by using servers outside the teamviewer.com domain, it will probably be necessary to block the executable and hope none of your users are smart enough to rename it.

Under Application Control on your Fortigate, you will find 3 different signatures for TeamViewer in the Remote.Access category.

Block all of them under application overrides.
