What is an IP address? What is IP Restriction?
Many of the internet users still don’t know what an IP, Internet Protocol, means. IP address is like a digital address for your computer, for the internet to know where to reach you. In a nutshell, it is a network address that allows one computer to communicate with another over the Internet. Every website has its own IP address.
IP restriction feature of CloudCodes For Business enables the IT admins to restrict access of their corporate data from specified, pre defined IP addresses only. An IT admin can Whitelist or Blacklist IP addresses for the entire organization, specific OUs or a single user from the admin dashboard of CloudCodes For Business.
Why Is IP Restrcition Important For You?
Cloud computing has enabled users to access business data from anywhere, any time and on any machine – though this has proved to be a boon to businesses in terms of productivity and output, it is has also become a bane in a few scenarios, when it comes to data security. Cloud computing’s flexibility has come to reduce the visibility of the IT team in the user activities, due to which the IT admin may not able to track the origin and reason of a data loss on time.
With our IP Restrcition policy in action, any user trying to access their cloud apps from an unknown IP address will be restricted to access corporate data even if he provides correct credentials. From a security point of view, this will prevent an unauthorized / potential data thief from accessing, looting or leaking corporate data, even if he was able to punch in the right credentials.
