True SaaS Visibility


Aperture provides complete visibility across all user, folder and file activity, providing detailed analysis that helps you transition from a position of speculation to one of knowing exactly what’s happening at any given point in time.

This gives you the ability to view deep analytics into day-to-day usage, which enables you to quickly determine if there are any data risk or compliance-related policy violations.

Contextual Risk Control


Allowing you to define granular, context-aware policy control, Aperture gives you the ability to drive enforcement, and the quarantine of users and data, as soon as a violation occurs.

This enables you to quickly and easily satisfy data risk compliance requirements, such as PCI and PII, while still maintaining the benefits of cloud-based applications.

Advanced Threat Prevention


WildFire™ threat intelligence cloud integration with Aperture provides advanced threat prevention to block known malware and identify and block unknown malware. This extends WildFire’s existing integration to prevent threats from spreading through the sanctioned SaaS applications, preventing a new insertion point for malware.

New malware discovered by Aperture is shared with the rest of the next-generation security platform, even if it is not in-line with the SaaS applications.

Complete Security


With detailed SaaS-based reporting and granular control of SaaS usage, Aperture builds upon the existing SaaS visibility and granular control capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform provided through App-ID™.

Adding visibility and control within SaaS applications with Aperture provides a full end-to-end security solution without any additional software, hardware or network changes required.
