Security Control allows you to configure the access whitelist.
Access from source IP addresses in the access whitelist to target hosts is not restricted by Security Control, even if the access may create risks. Therefore, be cautious when adding IP addresses to the access whitelist.
Note The access from an IP address is allowed within 10 minutes after it is added to the access whitelist.
