Control Access to Dataverse with IP Firewall: Secure Your Data with Ease

Headshot of article author Ritesh Pandey


We’re excited to let you know that the IP firewall feature is now generally available for the Power Platform environments across all regions. This feature allows you to control access to Dataverse, enabling you to implement stricter security measures. With IP Firewall, Power Platform administrators can configure IP restrictions on each of the Power Platform environments, allowing access to Dataverse only from allowed IP ranges. This helps mitigate risks of insider exfiltrating the data and prevents token replay attack from restricted IP ranges. We hope this feature will help you keep your organizational data secure and protected.

When you configure the IP firewall on the Power Platform environment, it will only allow the requests from the configured IP ranges and reject all other requests, thereby allowing you to restrict the access to Dataverse.

Get Started

Power Platform admins can enable IP restrictions on Power Platform environments (available per licensing requirement) individually via Power Platform admin Center, by default this feature is turned off.
