Secure Sessions and data transmission are via TLS cryptographic protocols, using global step-up certificates, ensuring that the users have a secure connection from their browsers to our service. Network protection with perimeter firewalls and edge routers to block unused protocols, internal firewalls segregate traffic between the application and database tiers as well as intrusion detection sensors throughout the internal network, reporting events to a security event management system for logging, alerts, and reports. Finally, a third party provider continuously scans the network externally and alerts for changes in the baseline configuration.

Disaster Recovery performs real-time replication to disk at each data center, and near real-time data replication between the production data center and the disaster recovery center. All data is transmitted across encrypted links.

Internal and Third-party testing and assessments are performed before each new release and regular scans the networks for system vulnerabilities.

The key to Salesforce success is the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your data. Security is the top priority for Salesforce Cloud, after all their livelihood depends on it.
