Salesforce has launched Salesforce Shield, a new set of Salesforce1 Platform services that include Field Audit Trail, Platform Encryption, Data Archive and Event Monitoring.
Salesforce Shield enable companies with compliance or governance requirements or businesses in regulated industries to build trusted cloud apps fast without using codes.
The company said organization like First Data and Genomic Health are using Salesforce Shield today to build trusted apps.
Additionally, with Salesforce Shield, IT departments and developers are empowered with drag-and-drop tools to quickly create trusted cloud apps with auditing, encryption, archiving, and monitoring built in, all delivered on the proven Salesforce1 Platform.
Platform Encryption allows customers to easily designate sensitive data to be encrypted while preserving important business functionality like search and workflow.
In addition, using Data Archive, customers can store long-lived business data in the Salesforce1 Platform.
Customers can track changes at the field level for up to ten years and set different policies for each Salesforce object to ensure data is purged when no longer needed with Field Audit Trail.
This apart, Event Monitoring gives businesses unprecedented visibility into how their applications are being used and by whom.
Salesforce Shield empowers independent software vendors (ISVs) and systems integrators (SIs) alike to create an entirely new generation of apps that address corporate governance and industry requirements.
Salesforce Shield will be priced at a percentage of a customer’s total Salesforce product spend and customers can purchase components of Salesforce Shield together or individually.
In May, Salesforce launched Salesforce Wave for Big Data that supports businesses to utilize big data insights with the Salesforce Analytics Cloud.
