Cause:  
Resolution:

 

  • Kemp offers a Web Application Firewall (WAF) feature which gives the ability to block traffic specifically based on country of origin. This gives the ability select countries that should not be allowed access based on IP information.
  • WAF is a feature that is available on a Enterprise Plus support level.
  • Content Switching can be used to block specific requests to domains or URLs though, so for example to block requests to "example.ru", create a simple content rule to match on /\.ru/ and fail it:

  • This content rule would fail any requests that contain ".ru". This process can be repeated for subsequent country domains.
