Learn about the tools SaaS Security API provides to help
you analyze inherited exposure.
SaaS Security API enables you to investigate
the scope and source of the risky behavior and identify inherited
exposure. Assets can inherit exposure from:
folders. Explore an asset’s file and folder structure using the asset tree.
Shared Drives (Google Drive) or Team Folders (Dropbox). Browse
the membership list.
Inherited Exposure from Parent Folders
SaaS Security API enables you to explore an
asset’s hierarchy. After you determine the root-cause of the inherited
access, you can remove the direct link on the file(s) or all direct
and indirect exposures through parent folders, depending on the
cloud app. You can take these actions manually or automatically.

Inherited Exposure from Shared Drives and Team Folders
SaaS Security API provides a membership tree
so you can explore the members for a given shared drive (Google
Drive) or team folder (Dropbox). After you identify External users
that pose a risk to your organization, you can delete them from
the shared drive or team folder.
