Is there a way to block Messages and Safari on macOS?

We're piloting a few macbooks in our org and we want to block Messages and Safari from being used. Does anyone know of a way to do so? I can only find a way to do so on iOS devices, no macOS.

Or even use the Firewall to block incoming connections on those apps?

Running apps policy blacklist?

Thanks for the suggestion. I've set up a blacklist and applied dynamic security policy tags, but it seems I'm still able to open them. The blacklist, that I can see, only shows if they're in violation of the policy, not actually blocking the app. I'm brand new to Systems Manager (literally today) and it's a bit hard to navigate and understand the settings, so I may be doing it wrong.
