You should be able to accomplish the same thing by configuring your
local firewall to REJECT the packets before the reach the company
firewall and get dropped, that means configuring each box though so it
may be easier to get your IT admin to make the change to the company
firewall, or he may refuse in which case you're left with the local
option at least.
