Hi Mehta,

To use Intune App Protection policies the app needs to have the Intune SDK integrated which not alot of third party apps have. See following link for an overview of how this integration works: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/app-sdk

What you should look for is If the app you want to protect supports AppConfig which is an open standard for any EMM. Using AppConfig you can enable SSO, DLP, Encryption etc.
You can find out more about AppConfig here and also check if the vendor for the app you want to configure supports it: https://www.appconfig.org

For guidance on how to use appconfig in Intune, please see following docs page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/app-configuration-policies-overview
