Access Management

The App Cloud helps control and manage the enterprise app environment across the hall, the office, and the whole business, from anywhere in the world.

Built-in, role-based access allows for control over where apps are deployed, and which data each user can access at the object, field, or record level. You can also create custom rules across roles and profiles so you can share data when you want, with the user you want.

Introducing Salesforce Shield

With Salesforce Shield, IT departments and developers can now use point-and-click tools to seamlessly build a new level of trust, transparency, compliance, and governance right into business-critical apps.

Platform Encryption

As more customers use Salesforce to store PII, sensitive, confidential, or proprietary data, they need to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of that data to meet both external and internal data compliance policies. Platform Encryption is designed to allow you to retain critical app functionality — like search, workflow, and validation rules — so you maintain full control over encryption keys and can set encrypted data permissions to protect sensitive data from unauthorized users. Platform Encryption allows you to natively encrypt your most sensitive data at rest across all your Salesforce apps.
