After completing this unit, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe how to increase platform compatibility when interacting with encrypted data.
  • Explain how to sync data to/from Heroku Shield.

Heroku Connect: Heroku Shield Support

Heroku Connect can now sync data to/from Heroku Shield databases, and you can add it to BAAs (business associate agreements) for HIPAA-regulated (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) workloads.

Shield: Filter-Preserving Encryption

Platform Encryption customers can opt in to the filter-preserving encryption scheme, powered by deterministic encryption techniques, to find case-sensitive, exact matches. Customers opt in on a field-by-field basis when they need the ability to filter and execute queries on fields with unique attributes, such as fields in custom indexes.
