IP Whitelisting

Verloop.io follows the security best practices to ensure your data is safe. The whitelisting of an IP address is a cybersecurity technique that gives IT administrators control over who can access business systems and resources on the Verloop.io platform. IP whitelisting involves creating a list of trusted IP addresses, assigning them to a user or group of users as a unique identifier, and permitting the IP address on the target server only.
