Data residing within enterprise-enabled SaaS applications is not visible to an organization’s network perimeter. Aperture adds the ability to connect directly to sanctioned SaaS applications to provide data classification, sharing/permission visibility, and threat detection within the application. This yields unparalleled visibility, allowing organizations to inspect content for data-risk violations and control access to shared data via a contextual policy.

Aperture builds upon the existing SaaS visibility and granular control capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform provided through App-ID™ with detailed SaaS-based reporting and granular control of SaaS usage. Aperture adds visibility and control within SaaS applications and provides a full end-to-end security solution without any additional hardware, software or network changes required.

Key features of Aperture include:

• Complete visibility across all user, folder and file activity – Helps organizations transition from a position of speculation to one of knowing what is happening at any given point in time.
• Retroactive analysis and control of data and threat exposure – Enforcement dating back to the creation of the SaaS account itself.
• Deep content inspection and usage analytics – Quickly classify data and determine if there are any data risks or compliance-related policy violations.
• Granular, context-aware policy control – Drive the enforcement and quarantine of folders and data as soon as a violation occurs.
• Advanced threat protection – Block known malware, and identify and block unknown malware.
