The use of SaaS apps is creating gaps in security visibility and new risks for threat propagation, data leakage and regulatory noncompliance. Palo Alto Networks Aperture falls into the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) space and helps you safely enable your SaaS apps. Here’s how.
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 to the data inside your SaaS apps at any given point in time. This enables you to quickly determine if there are any data risk or compliance-related policy violations.
Aperture integrates with the Palo Alto Networks WildFire threat intelligence cloud to provide advanced threat prevention, blocking known malware and identifying and blocking unknown malware. This extends WildFire’s existing integration to prevent threats from spreading through your sanctioned SaaS apps, preventing a new insertion point for malware.
Any new malware discovered by Aperture gets shared with the rest of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, even if it isn’t in-line with the SaaS apps. You can also drive enforcement and the quarantine of users and data as soon as a violation occurs, helping you to satisfy data risk compliance requirements like PCI and PII.
With detailed SaaS-based reporting and granular control of SaaS usage, Aperture builds on the existing SaaS visibility and granular control capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform provided through App-ID.
