It would be great if SWG would allow blocking by TLD. At the moment, there is not a clean way of blacklisting or blocking traffic by TLD within the SWG product.

I understand this can be done with DNS etc. but feel the web gateway product is the more appropriate device for this type of setting. The current blacklist configuration will allow a custom rule but unfortunately the product does not apply these only at root level within the URL. For example, a rule for *.ru would apply to rudolph.google.com as well as malware.ru.
