Palo Alto Networks SaaS Security (Aperture)
Aperture looks directly into SaaS applications, providing full visibility into the activities of users and data while granular controls maintain policy to eliminate data exposure and threat risks.
Secure your business-critical data residing within enterprise SaaS applications with Aperture. With SaaS security capabilities across our Next-Generation Security Platform, you now have complete visibility and reporting, instant classification, and granular enforcement across users, folders and file activities–so you can protect the data in your SaaS applications.
Aperture extends the visibility and granular control of our security platform into SaaS applications themselves – an area traditionally invisible to IT. Aperture solves this problem by looking into SaaS applications directly, providing full visibility into the day-to-day activities of users and data. Granular controls ensure policy is maintained to eliminate data exposure and threat risks.
With detailed SaaS-based reporting and granular control of SaaS usage, Aperture builds upon the existing SaaS visibility and granular control capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform provided through App-ID. Adding visibility and control within SaaS applications with Aperture provides a full end-to-end security solution without any additional software, hardware or network changes required.
Visibility and control of data exposure that doesn’t just look at data in-line but from the creation of the SaaS account itself, no matter how long ago that was.
One of the risks of a SaaS application, especially one that syncs files with users automatically, is that it presents a new insertion point for malware. Aperture solves this through integration with WildFire to identify known and unknown malware residing within the SaaS application.
