Feature
Description
New application attributes included in risk score calculations
SaaS Security Inline calculates a risk score for a SaaS app based on application attributes. SaaS Security Inline now displays a new category of attributes for Identity Access Management. The attributes displayed in this new category help you assess the authentication and access-control capabilities of an app. Some attributes in this new category were previously listed as Security and Privacy attributes. In addition, a new attribute in this category indicates whether a SaaS app supports password policies.
For the Security and Privacy attributes category, new attributes were added to indicate whether a SaaS app supports encryption at rest, encryption in transit, native data classification, and more.
SaaS Security Inline now considers these new attributes when calculating risk scores for applications. For this reason, many applications have updated risk scores. If you have previously changed the default risk score for a specific SaaS application, your custom risk score is not affected by any change in the default risk score. If you have configured the global risk score by assigning different weights to attributes, these customizations are also not affected.
