Why is IP Whilelisting a Premium Product

Atlassian is forcing it's community of users to go from on-premise to cloud. A lot of the security concerns with cloud are mitigated by being on-premise behind a firewall and away from the public. It appears that Atlassian believes as such. So they have put additional tax on the features that provide security. 


LDAP/AD connectivity requires an additional $6000/yr for a team of 100.

IP Whitelisting doubles the prices of the pre/user license from $7,000 to $14,000 per year.

There seems to be a misalignment of revenue and security, where security is monetized more than that core JIRA product itself.

I suspect it's probably because whitelisting costs effort, and most of the systems Atlassian provide don't need it, so they choose not to do it and pass the cost on to the smaller systems.  Larger installs that want it are seen as worth offering it to as they've paying more.

It's not doubling the price for whitelisting, it's doubling the price to get a whole swathe of 

I'd also point out that whitelisting is not for security, it's for limiting casual access to places that you have more reason to trust.  It's not hard to get around whitelisting, so it's not for actual security (the harder bit is working out what has been whitelisted to you can pretend you're coming from there)
