The software will definetly have a signature of some sort, close all other connections first and then try to find them

Why not look at disabling the software from running the .exe on client machines via group policy ?

The ISA option would be to find the signatures used by IDM and blocking them via ISA, you could use apps such as wireshare to get the signatures. As far as blocking them you can follow this guide once you have the signatures.
