This extension is intended to improve the security in Magento 2. By the time of release the functionality of this extension is open to a lot of expansion whereas the initial focus was on closing down backend access to a specified whitelist of IP's while redirecting others to a CMS page with information.

If you have any requests to add to the security extension which is not already covered by the Magento 2 core (like 2FA and Captcha), we would be happy to help you out and spend some resources and time to add it to the extension.

Feel free to create a support request to request for features in this security extension.

Installation

To use the extension, purchase the free extension and install it with composer as per our installation instructions.


Compatibility Details

Magento 2.4.X

Extension v1.0
Installation Instructions
composer require gogento/security "^240.1"

Easy Backend Firewall


Instead of using your webserver to tighten down the backend, this extension adds an IP whitelist both for IPv4 and IPv6 which allows whitelisting of IP segments to make security easy.

IPv4

To whitelist an IPv4 segment, as IP Address enter only the segment that needs to match. For example "123.234.123" will allow any IP address which starts with this, effectively allowing 254 IP's to connect to the Magento 2 backend..

In the next version the option to add subnets like /20 will be added.

IPv6

Just like IPv4, you can specify either a full address to whitelist or just specify a partial IP string and ommit the rest, to allow a wildcard in your IP whitelisting

Need Support?


Our extensions should always work properly out of the box. If you do have issues with our extension, feel free to contact us.

Development Support is always free and is prioritized in the following situations:

  1. Our extension is not working properly in the latest version of Magento.
  2. Our extension is not working properly in the last previous version of Magento.
  3. Our extension causes an issue but you dont understand what happens. Our initial research is free of charge.

Conflicts between our extension and other extensions or your theme is not part of the free support. If you require help with that, we will still be able to solve your issues. We will do an initial research and let you know what the costs will be to get this resolved.

Initial resource requires us to have access to a server where the issue is reproducible. We prefer access to a staging environment but if there's only one production environment, we will take all precautions to ensure your integrity is never compromised. Our support engineers are Linux experts, we assure you that we wont change anything in your environment and leave the environment in the state that it was when we got access.

Need Customizations?


There may be situations where the extension requires customizations for your specific case and we're always able to scope the customization for you and provide you with a quick indication of the costs involved.

We can also develop completely custom extensions or build integrations with external systems to automate your business.

No matter how hard the case seems, contact us and we'll take a look at the possibilities. Since asking never costs anything, why not give it a try?

Installation and Upgrade Details

We do not provide direct download links of our extensions as they are not needed and bad practise. Installing and maintaining the latest updates of your extensions using composer is the best and safest solution. If you do need a manual download, feel free to contact us for aid.

Installing an extension is the same process as upgrading an extension. You can run the exact same composer require command as you do with the installation with the new version set, to upgrade the extension


Step 1 - Setup composer authentication

To install our extensions you need to first setup the composer repository for your account.
You don't need to do this after every purchase, just after the very first purchase you make in our webshop. Your composer URL can be found in your account details and can be setup with composer by executing this command on your server in your Magento 2 root:

composer config repositories.gogento composer https://gogento.com/composer/customer/[your-composer-secret]

These instructions can also be found in your account details


Step 2 - Install the right version

Now find the closest version matching your Magento 2 installation and run the composer require command below.


Magento 2.4.X

Extension v1.0
composer require gogento/security "^240.1"

Step 3 - Post Installation

After the extension installation you can proceed with the default deployment commands which are run after adding a new extension.

1. Upgrading the database schema

bin/magento setup:upgrade
2. Verify your deployment mode
bin/magento deploy:mode:show
3. Run if the above command returns "production"
bin/magento setup:di:compile
bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy [your locales]
4. Wrap up the deployment
bin/magento index:reindex
bin/magento cache:clean
