Set up a proxy/gateway and add a rule to block URIs with paths starting with “/_utils”?
It might also be possible to remove the HTML files that make up Futon, though I’m not sure
of their exact path in the installation.

Why do you need to do this? Futon doesn’t let users do anything they can’t already do
using the REST API, so you won’t be gaining any security by disabling it.
