New Features Introduced in May 2018
The following table provides a snapshot of new features introduced for Aperture™ in May 2018. Refer to the Aperture Administrator’s Guide for more information on how to use the Aperture service.
Enhanced Support for Microsoft Azure Storage Application
You now have full visibility and control for your Azure subscription and storage accounts with the iterative scan service, automatic remediation, and snippet support provided by Aperture. Because Azure users are constantly sharing and uploading content to containers, the iterative scan service continuously discovers and reports all container changes, suspicious activities, and events since the previous scan, so you can prevent any unintentional or malicious exposures. Due to event grid service region limitations, the Azure Storage iterative scan is only available in the us-central-east region. To view the details of an incident, Aperture now displays snippets of 100 bytes before and after the violation, so you can identify sensitive file and folder content within an Azure account. When you discover an asset is vulnerable, you can now create policy rules to automatically quarantine compromised Azure Storage assets and notify administrators of incidents and risky user activity to prevent exposure, malware propagation and data exfiltration.
Expanded Cloud Security License Offerings
The Palo Alto Networks Security Operating platform extends our leadership in cloud security and creates the only holistic cloud offering to address your critical security needs as you transition to the cloud. With this offering, you can now strengthen the security and compliance in your public cloud installations and expand your enforcement capabilities. The expanded capabilities help you continuously monitor your public cloud deployments, prevent data loss with increased storage security, ensure your sensitive workloads are in a continuous state of industry compliance, and automatically report assets, services and account settings against a set of strict security and compliance controls.
The license offerings available include:
