How to block iDrive backups

Hello! IDrive is horrific backup software IMO but people use it and it eats bandwidth. It’s not a preset in layer 7 rules in wireless firewall settings. Anybody know how to nerf it?

Despite the branding it is not an Apple product.

In that case, port the machine down.  Start a packet capture on "port 53".  Start the machine up and then start the backup.

 

Examine all the DNS queries.  You should see something related to that product.  Then create a firewall rule to block access to that DNS domain.
