Use this page to create a report that summarizes the SaaS application activity on your network. This predefined report presents a comparison on the sanctioned versus unsanctioned SaaS application usage on your network and you can use this information to help steer your users toward sanctioned applications. You can then enforce granular context and application-based policies for SaaS applications that you want to allow or block on your network.
To accurately generate this report, you must tag the sanctioned applications on your network (See
Actions Supported on Applications). The firewall and Panorama consider any application without this predefined tag as unsanctioned for use on the network. Is is important to know about the sanctioned applications and unsanctioned applications that are prevalent on your network because unsanctioned SaaS applications are a potential threat to information security; they are not approved for use on your network and can cause an exposure to threats and loss of private and sensitive data.
To schedule the report, see
Monitor > PDF Reports > Email Scheduler. On PA-200, PA-500, and PA-2000 Series firewalls, the SaaS Application Usage report is not sent as a PDF attachment in the email. Instead, the email includes a link you use to open the report in a web browser.
