Sales Cloud is built on a robust and flexible security architecture trusted by companies around the world, including those in the most heavily regulated industries — from financial services, to healthcare, to government. Trusted by more than 150,000 companies across all industries and around the world, the platform provides security and control over everything from user and client authentication through administrative permissions to the data access and sharing model.
Org Security — Salesforce protects your organization’s data from all other customer data by using a unique identifier that restricts access to your data at every level from anyone outside of your company — including us.
User Security — User authentication (both delegated and SAML) combined with network-level security by IP address, session restrictions, and audit trails provides control and visibility into what users are doing in the system and their field history.
Programmatic Security — Configurable authenticated sessions secure access to logic, data, and metadata. Salesforce even offers a source code scanner that produces a report analyzing the security of your code.
Trust and Visibility — Trust starts with transparency, so Salesforce displays real-time information on system performance and security, and offers tips on best security practices for your organization. Learn more at trust.salesforce.com
