Policy Settings can prevent the execution of unsigned binaries.

MacOS can be set to prevent the execution of unsigned binaries. This is done by pushing a security policy to the system, which is then enforced by the SecAssessment subsystem.

Of course, you can still install XCode and compile binaries locally, and even execute them. You can also code in interpreted languages such as the local Python, and call system functions from there, so the policy is only of very limited use in locking down the system.
