OrangeCRM provides many features that are designed to assist your business in risk management. An important area not to be overlooked is the need to protect against fraudulent activity from customer service reps.

One of the many ways OrangeCRM can help to significantly minimize such risk is by giving you the ability to control user access at the IP address level. This valuable feature allows you to block users from accessing OrangeCRM from unauthorized locations or devices, such as their home computer, cell phone or tablet.

Restricting user access to only approved work locations and devices is easy with OrangeCRM’s IP address whitelist. Simply open an ACL User record and go to the IP Address tab.

Then enable the IP Whitelist and enter the public IP addresses the user is allowed to access from. Multiple IP addresses can be added to the whitelist individually and/or in a range.

With the IP Whitelist enabled, user access will be denied when login attempts come from an IP address that is not on the whitelist.
