Windows Defender

Is there any way to block any applications within the windows defender?? I don't want anyone to install one specific applications and if they try to install, windows defender somehow blocks it. can we somehow integrate this in sccm so that we can block these on all devices in our environment?

I would personally do this via group policy.

I don't have access to Group policy. This only needs to be done on few machines. I want to know if there is any way to block apps with windows defender? or is this tool just for scanning the machines.

You can allow or block an App working through the firewall (some app that needs internet). Otherwise it is a scanning and firewall tool (and a good one as well).

Users should be Standard users and that blocks most apps from installing.
