Feature
Description
Support for Microsoft Exchange (Beta)
The Aperture service has been enhanced to include support for Microsoft Exchange . Exchange provides a suite of messaging and collaborative software for email service, contact management, and calendar scheduling regardless of location or device.The Aperture service scans and analyzes email assets and applies policy to identify exposures, risky user behavior, and sensitive documents and identifies the potential risks associated with each asset. The service also performs deep content inspection and protects your assets from known and unknown malware, data exposure, and data exfiltration.
Support for Amazon S3 App (Beta)
You can now add the Amazon Simple Storage Service (AWS S3) , a cloud storage application, using the Aperture service. The Aperture service scans and analyzes all of your AWS S3 assets in the buckets you own (excludes requester pays buckets) and applies policy to identify exposures, external collaborators, risky user behavior, and sensitive documents and identifies the potential risks associated with each asset. The service also performs deep content inspection and protects your assets from known and unknown malware, data exposure, and data exfiltration. As the service identifies risks, you can assess them and define automated actions (for example, quarantine the asset or revoke upload and download links) to eliminate or dismiss the risk.
SAML Authentication
Authentication for the Aperture service has been extended to include SAML 2.0 single sign-on authentication. If your organization has standardized on SAML authentication, you can centralize access for Aperture administrators and eliminate multiple sign-on accounts.
