Prevent fields from being updated via sforce connector

We have a few fields that are not displayed on the page layout that are filled via workflow rule.  We recently rolled out a new Object that users insert records using the excel connector.  We're wondering if there is a way to create a validation rule to prevent those fields from being updated via the connector in case a user decides to play around with the connector.


Thanks in advance.

We can do one thing create a new dummy field which should only be updated from connector now you can write a logic in trigger that if dummy field is getting update along with changes in specified fields by you then use addError message.
