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.

Retroactive Prevention

Visibility and control of data exposure that doesn’t just look at data in-line but from the creation of the SaaS account itself, no matter how long ago that was. 


Prevent Threats

One of the risks of a SaaS application, especially one that syncs files with users automatically, is that it presents a new insertion point for malware. Aperture solves this through integration with WildFire to identify known and unknown malware residing within the SaaS application.

Aperture extends the visibility and granular control of our security platform into SaaS applications themselves – an area traditionally invisible to IT. Aperture solves this problem by looking into SaaS applications directly, providing full visibility into the day-to-day activities of users and data. Granular controls ensure policy is maintained to eliminate data exposure and threat risks.

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.

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.

Enterprise IT departments are increasingly turning to Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) products to secure and control the use of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications. The challenge, however, is for IT leaders to truly understand what they are getting when they purchase a CASB product and to choose a security platform that provides the most comprehensive and robust protection for their organization.
