IP Restriction allows you to give selective access to web servers based on the client’s IP address. This setting adds an extra layer of security by allowing an administrator to limit IP address by specifying which systems should be allowed or forbidden from accessing and making requests to the server, and hence minimizes unwanted traffic.
There are numerous requests submitted to web servers on a regular basis, and there are numerous reasons to maintain web services secure. We can handle the requests that come to the server with IP address restrictions. IP restriction monitors network traffic and, if it suspects a request coming from a specific IP address is suspicious, it will either limit IP address from accessing your web service or notify you to limit IP address access.
IP Restriction can be used to limit IP address from a particular range to improve security.
The number of IP-based controllers you can utilize is unlimited.
IP Restriction can help to manage and minimize unwanted traffic.
All IP Restriction Addresses are synchronized so that the authorization is highly accurate and Security is enhanced.
IP Restriction solution is easier to implement and install for your cloud.
IP restriction will help to quickly transmit access to people who are allowed to access the site.
Only whitelisted IP addresses are allowed to log in successfully, according to the IP restriction. If you attempt to log in from an IP address that the system does not recognize as being whitelisted, you won't be granted access and the client would be shown an error message.
Let’s See, how this IP restriction would work in a scenario where a client of the user, who has enabled the IP Restrictions feature, wants to access the user’s server:
Let's take an example of one of our clients belonging to an organization. He wanted to limit the access of the web applications to authorized devices only. As the client wanted to allow only authorized personnel to access the application, their IP addresses were the only ones allowed to access the proxy link. Suppose a device connected to the web wants to access our client’s application via the proxy link. The IP address of this device making the request to the proxy link is verified against the list of IP addresses allowed by the client utilizing the services of the reverse proxy product. If the IP address is allowed, the device’s request is further transferred to the client’s server, else, the device receives a 403 Forbidden error.
