Transparency and Trust: How Salesforce Maintains Their Cloud Security

To the untrained eye, the cloud can seem like an open bank vault just waiting to be robbed. After all, it's basically a massive database of sensitive information, and in the digital age, information is worth its virtual weight in gold. As such, it seems obvious that if you want to keep your data safe, you keep it where you can protect it, that means on-site and away from the cloud. But is there any truth to this assumption? Not much, really. Yes, it's theoretically possible to hack into the cloud, but that same risk exists for every database. The truth is that the cloud has proven itself to be a reliable and secure choice for even the largest businesses, with 64% of enterprise companies noting that cloud infrastructure is a more secure data solution than legacy systems. And although security issues are often the top concern of companies considering adopting a cloud solution, a survey by RightScale shows that 87% of businesses who have used the cloud don't rate security as one of their top five concerns.

What makes Salesforce the most-dependable solution on the market?

While the cloud is quickly becoming the most trusted data solution for organisations of all sizes, the leader in cloud computing — Salesforce — is proving itself by driving cloud security even further. By making security its number one priority, Salesforce has created a fortress for client data and continues to be the leader in cloud security at scale.

Here's how:

  1. Transparency. Salesforce knows that trust is an essential part of implementing superior cloud security. As such, Salesforce provides live data on system performance and updates on any recent phishing, malware, or intrusion attempts, so clients can easily learn the state of their data at any time. In fact, Salesforce’s goal is complete transparency, so that its clients can better use customer relationship management (CRM) solutions to achieve success, and can feel safe while doing so.

Salesforce takes the safety of its clients' data very seriously. In fact, it has been certified to comply with a number of international standards, including PCI DSS, FISMA, ISO/IEC 27001:2005, SAS 70 Type II, SysTrust, and Eu-US and Swiss-US Safe Harbor.

When it comes to security, the cloud may well be the most secure place to store data, and when it comes to the cloud, no platform is better protected than Salesforce.

Summary: For businesses that want a clear advantage, Salesforce is the clear answer. With Salesforce, businesses can enjoy the comprehensive CRM solutions, improved business performance, advanced customisation options, best selection of CRM-extending apps, and game-changing innovation that has made Salesforce synonymous with business success, and all at a cost that is designed to be affordable for any organisation, large or small.
