Need to block Microsoft Sharepoint entirely

For business security reasons, since Microsoft is well known to allow malicious content on Sharepoint websites, we need to completely block it.

In App Control, I have configured application "Microsoft SharePoint" for block and log. In the CFS Custom Category, I have added as category 59 which is blocked.

Yet users are still able to get to those websites.

    I have a support case open for this. One had to be done was create an FQDN address object * and then create a firewall rule to block that as a destination.

    That is stating is simply. It is a lot more complex which I understand but is hard to explain.
