IP Restriction for Zoho


How can IP Restriction restrict access to Zoho?

miniOrange allows you to use IP Restriction policy to provide or deny access to the users based on trusted IP Addresses.

  • For the IP Restriction to work, the Admin must create a policy specifying permitted IP addresses which allows the access to the application.
  • Miniorange supports IP addresses range in three formats i.e. IPv4, IPv4 CIDR and IPv6 CIDR.
  • To block the access, Admin must specify an action which needs to be performed when a user tries to login from a non trusted IP address (Such as Deny or Challenge the user with 2FA).
  • Once the restriction policy is configured, it can be applied to any application’s login policy to enable IP restriction for that application

Connect with External Source of Users


miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.
