Supported SaaS Applications

SaaS applications are cloud apps where the software and infrastructure are owned and managed by the application service provider but where you retain full control of the data, including who can create, access, share, and transfer information stored in the hosted application. Although most SaaS applications allow you to configure rules about how data can be shared, the way data is exposed and the rules for controlling this sharing of data vary from application to application, which makes it difficult to ensure consistent security policy across all applications, assets, and users. The Aperture service provides centralized policy and enforcement for all of your SaaS applications so that you can ensure that all of your corporate data is protected at all times.
The following table lists the SaaS applications that the Aperture service supports and briefly describes how data is exposed in each one.
