    Hi Osmar,

    I hope you are well.

    You can achieve what you have described by creating an ACL policy and set the policy to block all IP's with the configuration, then in the exception list you can add the IP's you want to exclude from the ACL. 

    This will block all IP's but allow the IP's listed in your exception to access the site:

    Hi, Osmar.

    The method Ciaran described is the recommended method.

    For your clarification, AllowLists will allow any IPs listed to bypass all security policies

    This should be used sparingly, and only when absolutely necessary.
