Manage Aperture Policy
Policy in Aperture™ is simple and aims to create an awareness of user actions and minimize the risks associated with the use of SaaS applications. Aperture policy allows you to monitor and enforce responsible use of assets (files or other data) and protect against malware, malware propagation, and data leaks that are caused by human errors, such as promiscuous or inadvertent sharing, and sharing content using links without establishing an expiration date. When the Aperture service detects a policy violation, it generates an alert to notify you of an active incident related to malware, a security breach, or a compliance violation and, if configured, takes automatic action to remediate the incident.
When the Aperture service first connects to a SaaS application, it scans all the assets in the application and matches against the policy rules to retroactively uncover incidents and then displays all active incidents on the Dashboard. To maximize the results from this initial discovery process, configure the global scan settings for policy, examine your corporate acceptable use policy for SaaS applications, and review the default policy rules in the Aperture service before you start the scan.
