Feature
Description
Gmail (Beta)
You can now add Gmail for business to the Aperture service. The service applies policy and performs deep content inspection of Gmail messages and attachments to detect zero-day attacks, malware, and data exfiltration so you can view more information about the incident and decide if the activity poses a risk to your network.
Gmail Settings Enhancement
You can now identify vulnerable Gmail settings and activities to guard against impersonation, exposures and privacy violations using the Aperture service. The security control settings for Gmail have been enhanced to identify risks associated with inappropriate email forwarding such as emails forwarded from a private domain using a corporate "alias" and exposures, such as the public exposure of a private Gmail group. The Aperture service scans and analyzes email and assets and applies rules to identify exposures, risky user behavior and the potential risks association with each asset. As the service identifies risks, you can assess them and define actions to eliminate or dismiss the risk.
Risk Remediation for Citrix ShareFile
You can now create policy rules to quarantine compromised ShareFile assets and automatically notify owners of incidents, risky user activity, and when an asset is vulnerable.
Risk Remediation for Confluence
You can now remediate Confluence assets and apply policy rules to automatically change sharing, notify file owners of exposures and vulnerabilities, and quarantine compromised assets.
Workplace by Facebook (Beta)
You can now secure Workplace by Facebook using the Aperture service. The service analyzes data in your Workplace by Facebook app and performs policy-driven risk analysis so that you can proactively discover risks. The service also provides malware scanning, machine learning, and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for Workplace by Facebook News Feed, Work Chat, and Private, User and Group messaging. Due to administrative requirements, Aperture supports Workplace premium only.
Enhanced Support for Exchange
To guard against user impersonation and privacy violations, you can now detect any Exchange administrator accessing the inbox of end users with the Aperture service. In addition, you can now identify public folders in Exchange to reduce inappropriate exposures. The Aperture service scans and analyzes email and assets and applies policy to identify exposures, risky user behavior and the potential risks associated with each asset. As the service scans and identifies risks, you can assess them and define actions to eliminate or dismiss the risk.
