SaaS Application Visibility on Prisma SaaS

Use SaaS application visibility on Prisma SaaS to gain better awareness of the sanctioned and unsanctioned usage and traffic on your network.
As your users adopt more SaaS applications, you need better visibility into usage, granular control over 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), Prisma SaaS can access your next-generation firewall or Prisma Access (formerly known as GlobalProtect cloud service) logs stored in the Cortex Data Lake, and combine that data with Prisma SaaS data to present a consolidated view of sanctioned and unsanctioned application usage across your enterprise.
Application visibility on Prisma SaaS provides a list of all 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 Prisma SaaS dashboard to deliver complete visibility and granular enforcement across all user, folder, and file activity within sanctioned SaaS applications.
