IP Restrictions Settings

IP Address Restrictions is a feature that allows organizations to restrict from which IP Addresses users can access the Acunetix 360 dashboard, which enhances the security of the solution. This feature is also included in Acunetix 360 On-Premises edition. Once it is enabled, anyone trying to log in to Acunetix 360 from an IP Address not in the Trusted IP Addresses list will be denied access.

This IP Address restriction feature is disabled by default.

Only account administrators can enable or disable IP restrictions in Acunetix 360.



Acunetix supports IPv6 both as servers and agents. This means you can configure Acunetix 360 On-premises server to use IPv6, and Acunetix 360 can scan websites that use IPv6.

For further information, see Overview of Settings in Acunetix 360.
