I have some users in my company that access our Production SQL instance via SSMS. I would like to know if there a way to block all domain users from using SQL Management Studio, except domain admin, as domain admin has 'sysadmin' rights.

We have software that utilizing Integrated Security.  I would still like our users to be able to utilizing our software using the SQL Windows authenticate, but not able to logon via SSMS.
