Security control allows you to configure IP address whitelists. Requests initiated from IP addresses in a whitelist are directly forwarded to the destination servers. This prevents normal traffic from being blocked by Security Center. This topic describes how to use the security control feature.

Background information

If Security Center identifies a normal IP address as malicious and blocks its requests, your services may be affected. To prevent false positives, add the IP address to a whitelist. Security Center no longer generates alerts for or blocks requests initiated from IP addresses that are in a whitelist.

Notice After you add an IP address to a whitelist, requests from the IP address are directly forwarded to the destination servers. Proceed with caution when you add an IP address to a whitelist.
