When we bought Siteshield, I had an assumption that we only Whitelist the Siteshield map IPs. I was then told based on our our usage that we need to whitelist:


22 CIDR (Siteshield)

17 CIDR (Secure Edge Staging Network)

15 IPs  (CCU) [no-CIDR]

959 IPs (Performance / Monitoring / SLA Agents) [no-CIDR]


Q1) Why aren't the CCU and Secure Edge Staging Network IPs part of our Siteshield map?

Q2) Why no CIDRs are provided for Performance / Monitoring / SLA Agents?

Q3) What impacts will I face if I don't white-list Performance / Monitoring / SLA Agents ?


My network admins are resisting to add this big of an ACL citing performance impact. Any experience from existing customers deploying Siteshield?

I found this discussion but I'm not sure how they optimized the SLA agent list (I don't want to limit it to north america)
