The Geofencing policy empowers you to restrict access to the Druva Cloud Platform Console from outside your corporate network. It helps you control, monitor, and protect your data from unauthorized access from outside the organization.
You can configure the Geofencing policy by specifying your company's physical gateway IPs in the policy. Only the administrators that are connected to your corporate network can access Druva Cloud Platform Console.
- While accessing the Druva Cloud Platform Console, if an administrator switches to a different network from the corporate network, Druva Cloud Platform Console will continue to remain accessible for 10 minutes, after which the session will expire and the user will be logged out.
- If an administrator enables Geofencing while other administrators are accessing the Druva Cloud Platform Console outside the corporate network, the Druva Cloud Platform Console will continue to remain accessible for the current active session. If a user leaves the Druva Cloud Platform Console idle for 30 minutes, the session will expire and the user will be logged out. The Geofencing policy will block all the subsequent login requests from an external network.
Only a Druva Cloud Administrator can enable Geofencing.
