New Features Introduced in August 2017

The following table provides a snapshot of new features introduced for Aperture™ in August 2017. Refer to the Aperture Administrator’s Guide for more information on how to use the Aperture service.
Support for Multi-Factor Authentication
To further strengthen your security posture, you can now create authentication policy rules that enforce multi-factor authentication (MFA) to verify end user identities. MFA provides multiple factors of authentication from independent categories, so if one factor is compromised (such as your login credentials), the attacker has at least one more barrier to breach before successfully breaking into your network. MFA enables you to control user access with a layered defense, and therefore provides greater security for your network resources.
Enhanced ShareFile Support
The Aperture service for ShareFile has been enhanced to monitor and report user events. You now have full visibility into user activity, including logins, file sharing and downloading, data storage and access permissions within your organization so you can effectively identify security risks. In addition, you can leverage the Aperture service for event reporting so you can quickly view detailed information about the user associated with the event and decide if the event poses a risk to your network.
Enhanced Support for Box, Google Drive, and Dropbox
For Box, Google Drive, and Dropbox , the Aperture service now monitors and reports events for up to 1000 files within a folder, and the activity on the folder. Folder event monitoring enables you to get deep visibility into folder activity, including who is accessing the content and how it is shared. You can download folder event details so you can quickly view more information about the event and decide if the activity poses a risk to your organization.
