Today, IP addresses are considered as one of the most valuable business assets. This is the reason why businesses are increasingly investing in creating a robust IP management strategy.
Let’s have a look at why IPv4 has become significant for modern businesses.
What is an IPv4 Address?
The 32 bits IP address, also called IPv4, is a significant part of TCP/IP networking that allows computers and networks to identify each other by means of numerical codes. By identifying the information regarding the location of a certain device located somewhere over the network, the address helps users connect with each other to share any form of information.
Spammers and malicious users that cause interference in the system by sending malicious content can be easily identified using IP address. As site owners can access the logs on the servers which carry information about IP addresses and their activities, they can check and ban the IP address from accessing the website in the future.
The IPv4 address not only shows the location of the device, but also gives information about the Internet Service Provider (ISP). So, if a user continues his/her abusive activities using the same ISP, the site owner can contact the ISP and request a ban on the user.
IPv4 addressing allows administrators to eliminate network outages and conflicts, track critical assets, and ensure network security. This can be done by monitoring the network considering a wide range of parameters, including IP address status, MAC address, hostnames, and DHCP lease data.
Moreover, the real time access to IP address data allows network administrators to quickly identify potential network abuse or security breaches by internal or foreign users.
Additionally, as Network Access Control (NAC) systems are becoming widely popular, IPv4 addressing allows administrators to facilitate and monitor the enforcement of policies, such as making sure that the operating system or anti-virus program is updated before assigning an IP or allowing access to the network.
Remote Access to the System
IPv4 addressing allows users to get remote access to a wide range of devices. For example, you can control your work PC using a 32 bit IP address along with a remote desktop application. With this convenience, business professionals can gain access to their devices while they are outside the office. IT administrators can easily create remote connection to employee workstations in a safe and secure manner.
