According to Microsoft, it is mandatory to target Office 365 and Secure Contacts as Cloud App in your Conditional Access Policy in order to correctly implement SCA. It is required to add Office 365 as Cloud App, because our Enterprise Application (Provectus - Secure Contacts) is using these data sources.
