Don’t assume your Salesforce data is automatically protected

As organizations turn to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and move increasing amounts of data into the cloud, many fail to understand that data within these critical applications is just as susceptible to loss, theft, and malicious attack as data that’s stored in the data center.

The common misconception is that SaaS applications protect their customers’ data automatically. The truth is SaaS applications have disaster recovery to protect themselves, but don’t provide these same recovery services if a customer has a data loss incident. For applications like Salesforce, standard IT operations like backup and recovery are often overlooked. SaaS cloud solutions are natively designed for productivity, not data restoration. Therefore, it’s essential to look for comprehensive third-party Salesforce backup and recovery solutions.
