Get Behind the Trusted Cloud

Learning Objectives

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

  • Talk about our standards for trust, and the investments we’ve made to ensure that we’re the world’s most trusted cloud.
  • Describe how Salesforce provides a level of security that no individual company could provide on their own.
  • Identify why our customers in highly regulated industries trust us with their most important data.

A Business Model Based on Trust

“We’re trustworthy, trust us!”

That’s where the topic of trust and security ends with most other companies. If the brevity of that conversation leaves you feeling unsettled, we’re glad to have you here! If security is a top priority for you, it means you really care about your customers and want to protect what’s rightfully theirs. And that’s where we have something in common.

Parker Harris, Co-Founder of Salesforce, built our company on trust.

At Salesforce, trust is our #1 priority. Data is one of the most valuable assets that each one of our customers possesses. Because we’re committed to providing secure access for our customers, we spend an incredible amount of time and resources on a world-class data security program.

Want to learn more about our trusted cloud or just see how we’re doing? You can head over to Salesforce Trust at any time to see the real-time and historic status of our availability, performance, and vulnerabilities.

If you’re in a highly regulated industry, we know that security is especially important to you. We commit to the highest security standards, providing you with transparency and real-time availability. And we scale that same standard to all our customers, no matter their industry.

So how do we do that? It’s not magic, folks, it’s multitenancy. And we’re about to talk all about it in the next unit.
