SaaS Application Visibility on Aperture

Use SaaS application visibility on Aperture to gain better security control and awareness of the sanctioned and unsanctioned usage and traffic on your network.
As your users adopt more SaaS applications, you need better visibility into SaaS usage, granular control over SaaS access, and compliance and security for your data in the cloud application. To help meet the challenge of understanding what is happening on your network (inline enforcement) and cloud applications (API-based protection), Aperture can access your next-generation firewall or GlobalProtect Cloud Service logs stored in the Cortex Data Lake (formerly Logging Service), and combine that data with Aperture data to present a consolidated view of sanctioned and unsanctioned SaaS application usage across your enterprise.
SaaS application visibility on Aperture provides a list of all SaaS applications in use on your network, along with a description of each application, its characteristics, data on the number of users, bytes transferred, and number of sessions to learn about the application usage statistics. You can also learn about if an unsanctioned application is being used, if there are alternative sanctioned applications in use, and which groups of people are using the unsanctioned application.
This visibility will enable you to assess whether you need to secure and sanction other apps or talk with your network administrator to block access to these applications and minimize data security risk for the enterprise. You can continue to use the Aperture dashboard to deliver complete visibility and granular enforcement across all user, folder, and file activity within sanctioned SaaS applications.
