The security controls for your database are:

Access Control by Source IP/Subnet

The number of source IP rules that you can add depends on the Redis Cloud Pro plan that you purchased. For example, the 1GB plan allows up to 8 source IP authentication rules. These rules can contain either IP or CIDR notation.


In case you require more source IP rules than your current Redis Cloud Pro plan entitles you to, you can see the different plans and the maximum number of source IP rules that they support here.

You may change your subscription at any time by going to Databases -> Configuration -> Edit -> Access Control & Security.

Note: only the account owner can upgrade/downgrade the subscription.

Redis Password

You can and should add a password for your database. This password is purely for full access to the data in the database.

One feature often overlooked is the little eye icon on the right side of the form field that can be used to view the password.


AWS Security groups

This option accepts the Group Name and the AWS Account ID as an input to identify the security group and secure your database.

Note: This feature is only for use when your database subscription is on Amazon Web Services and only for the rare times people run using EC2 classic as AWS recommends people use VPCs most times these days.
