New Features Introduced in February 2017

The following table provides a snapshot of new features introduced for Aperture™ in February 2017. Refer to the Aperture Administrator’s Guide for more information on how to use the Aperture service.
WildFire Report Enhancements
In addition to the current XML format, you can now generate and view Aperture WildFire reports in PDF format. This enables you to quickly view and examine WildFire results. The report includes a static analysis of suspicious file properties and dynamic analysis that displays details about the malicious host and network activity the file exhibited in the different WildFire sandbox environments.
Syslog and API Client Services
You can now configure the Aperture service to interface with syslog servers and API clients. The Aperture service can push syslog information to external syslog servers and third-party API clients can pull log information from the Aperture service. If your organization has standardized on a specific Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool, you can leverage this feature for monitoring and data collection.
International Data Centers
Palo Alto Networks has established new Aperture Data Centers in Europe and Asia-Pacific. These new data centers serve customers who are concerned about data privacy and data sovereignty and want their data to reside within the region.
Support for German- and Japanese-Language Documents
The Aperture service can now scan German-language and Japanese-language documents for Data Loss Prevention (DLP) scanning and machine learning to identify potential risks. If your organization has sensitive data written in German and Japanese languages, you can leverage the Aperture service to identify these sensitive assets in cloud apps and protect them from public and external exposure. To take advantage of this feature, Modify Policy Rules to include language-specific keywords.
Download and View Documents
You can now download quarantined documents or any other risk-related document for detailed review. If you do not have access rights to view a file from the cloud app, you can download the file from the Aperture service, investigate further, and quarantine if necessary. Read-Only administrators cannot download, but all other Aperture administrators can.
Custom Email Logo
You can now configure the Aperture service to include your corporate logo (or another custom image) in email messages. This helps users to quickly identify the message sender and trust the message contents.
Names for Cloud Apps
To distinguish between multiple instances of supported SaaS applications that you add to the Aperture service, the dashboard includes the Name of each instance in the list of Cloud Apps.
