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.
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.
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.
