Extending the Next-Gen Security Platform to SaaS


PANW-New-Logo-2

Today we are very excited to announce the availability of Aperture, a new SaaS security offering based on technology we acquired from CirroSecure in May 2015. As the latest enhancement to the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, Aperture helps organizations safely enable sanctioned SaaS applications, such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Salesforce.com.

Data residing within enterprise-enabled SaaS applications is not visible to an organization’s network perimeter. Aperture can connect directly to sanctioned SaaS applications to provide data classification, sharing/permission visibility, and threat detection within the application. This provides unparalleled visibility into these applications, allowing organizations to inspect content for data risk violations, and control access to shared data via a contextual policy.

Aperture builds upon the existing SaaS visibility and granular control capabilities of the Next-Generation Security Platform provided through App-IDTM with detailed SaaS-based reporting and granular control of SaaS access. Adding visibility and control within the SaaS applications using Aperture provides a full end-to-end security solution without any additional hardware, software, or network changes required. Thanks to complete visibility across all user, folder and file activity, you’re no longer speculating about what’s happening with these applications. You know exactly what’s happening.

Key features of Aperture include:

  • Complete visibility across all user, folder and file activity – Helps organizations transition from a position of speculation to one of knowing what is happening at any given point in time.
  • Retroactive analysis and control of data and threat exposure – Enforcement dating back to the creation of the SaaS account itself.
  • Deep content inspection and usage analytics – Quickly classify data and determine if there are any data risks or compliance-related policy violations.
  • Granular, context-aware policy control – Drive the enforcement and quarantine of folders and data as soon as a violation occurs.
  • Advanced threat protection – Block known malware, and identify and block unknown malware.

Take the time to learn more about Aperture and see how it can secure your SaaS applications.
