Blocking access to Consumer gmail accounts, but allow Google Apps

According to Google, the only way to block access to consumer gmail accounts, is to intercept the traffic, and insert a HTTP header for all traffic going to google.com.  Obviously PAN-OS can perform SSL inspection, but can it do the HTTP header insertion?

Hi Bruce

 

you can't inject things into the header of http sessions, but you can perform SSL decryption, inspect applications inside and block gmail by application

Even we have a app-id for the same but the application depends on ssl also.

Hence we require an ssl decryption ( either for custom category or for web-based email )  to make it work properly

you can also block attachment through the same if needed when ssl decrytpion in place
