Since there are no location restrictions within Salesforce’s default settings, users can block unauthorized access using Trusted IP ranges.
Limit Where and When Users Can Log in From
Salesforce allows organizations to define a list of trusted IP addresses that controls login access for your entire organization. This Trusted IP range is typically used to “whitelist” IPs at the organization level.
The Issue with Trusted IPs
If an employee connects to Salesforce outside of the trusted IP range, let’s say from Starbucks, they will be asked to verify their identity and then allowed into Salesforce. However, the next time a person goes to Starbucks, that user will no longer need to verify their identity.
With Perimeter 81 Private Server IP addresses, you can define network access according to custom IP ranges, ensuring only authorized users can access Salesforce resources.
Manually whitelisting IP addresses is a time-consuming process that requires constant management and delays productivity. Often times, users can even access admin accounts, posing a threat to security, operations and compliance.
Since remote users can connect to a gateway and then have their IP address whitelisted to a security group, cloud service platforms (AWS, Azure, SalesForce, etc.) can all be configured to work with Perimeter 81.
Perimeter 81 eliminates the need to manually whitelist every user's IP address. Instead, each user is automatically whitelisted to access the resources they need according to the roles and permissions assigned to them.
