Category: Product Docs & FAQS - Last Updated: Wed, 21 Mar 2018 - by Burak Aydin

IP Address Restrictions is a feature that allows organizations to restrict from which IP Addresses users can access the Netsparker Cloud dashboard, which enhances the security of the solution. This feature is also included in Netsparker Cloud On-Premises edition. Once it is enabled, anyone trying to log in to Netsparker Cloud from an IP Address not in the Trusted IP Addresses list will be denied access.

This IP Address restriction feature is disabled by default.
