How to Block Google Backup and Sync Application

Jump to solution

In the URL Filtering and Application categories (File Upload/File Sharing), Google Drive is listed and the FWs block the web access to Google Drive.  However, the Google Drive (Backup and Sync) application can still sync files to the Google Cloud.  I'd like to block this on the firewall.  I've been searching the Internet and I may have to manually try to block it with URLs and and ports.

Use the Signature Tool for custom Applications (Admin Guide) together with the R80 import function. 

Check Point Signature Tool (for Windows OS) allows you to create Application Control and URL Filtering for your own, or third-party applications. This tool expands your local Application Control and URL Filtering database for applications and URLs that you add for example for Google Drive (Backup and Sync) application.
