New Features Introduced in November 2016

The following topic provides a snapshot of new features introduced for Aperture™ in November 2016. Refer to the Aperture Administrator’s Guide for more information on how to use the Aperture service.
Automatic Risk Remediation
The Aperture service introduces a powerful new feature that can automatically discover and remediate risks. You can create policy rules that automatically quarantine compromised assets, automatically change sharing to maintain network security, and automatically notify owners when an asset is vulnerable. When you Automatically Remediate Risks, the Aperture service can process and fix large volumes of risks in record time with minimal overhead. Aperture supports automatic remediation on Outlook 365, Google Drive, Box, and Dropbox.
Improved Classification of EULA and Magic Quadrant Documents
End User License Agreement (EULA) documents that provide licensing agreements and Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) documents that provide market research reports are now classified appropriately. Previously, these non-sensitive documents were incorrectly classified as sensitive.
Enhanced Salesforce Support
The Aperture service for Salesforce has been enhanced to monitor more user activities within Salesforce. You now have full visibility into user activities within your organization so you can effectively pinpoint security risks. Salesforce activities you can monitor include login activities, file sharing and downloading, and report management (export, view, create). Activity monitoring allows organizations to discover risks related to user activities and usage.
Column Sorting
Now you can sort table columns in ExplorePeople to get a clearer view of how internal and external users (People) rank with respect to owned items, collaboration items, active risks, and risks on collaboration items. This can help you locate individuals within your organization that may need additional security training.
Link from Assets to Activities
You can now View all events associated with an asset (for example, when a file was created and when it was shared). While monitoring asset risks, you can open Activity Monitoring and track all activities associated with a particular asset to quickly see correlations between user activities and assets.
Automatic Risk Remediation Enhancement
