Blocking web sites with Defender for Cloud Apps

Link to video = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQOcUrS93FA

Thanks to the integration between Microsoft Edge browser, Cloud Apps Discovery (which is part of Defender for Cloud Apps) and Defender for Endpoint you can quickly and easily block most web based applications. In the example I prevent Facebook access on a Windows 11 device using the Edge browser. It is important to note that this blocking capability currently won’t work with third party browsers, however there are other ways of blocking sites with these browsers using other methods that are not covered in this video.

[CORRECTION] – Please note that in the video I may have indicated that this is possible with Microsoft 365 Business Premium. By default, it is not. Apologies for the confusion I may have caused here
