As enterprise IT departments grapple with an ever-evolving landscape of cloud-based software applications, they must also focus on the universal goal of staying agile in news ways, utilizing the right solution that keeps their environment secure but also allows data and processes to be governed in as efficient a manner as possible. For Salesforce users, an effective Salesforce Release Management, Data Backup and Security Strategies are imperative in meeting these objectives.

From extensive data backups and maintenance to the entire security lifecycle, implementation of Salesforce security solutions is growing more complicated year by year. But when done right, it can prevent data breaches, and other kinds of security incidents that could cost your business time, money and reputation. Having the right strategy in place can help ensure that your data is safe and secure, with the highest performance possible in your application.

Having comprehensive backup and recovery strategies and the proper governance in place are essential for all Salesforce deployments, especially as the enterprise migrates further into a cloud model. Software with built-in automation and the ability to let users take control of backups, monitoring, logins and other elements of security and release management within Salesforce all have a role in ensuring the necessary level of security and control are in place to safeguard company data.

Software providers aim to be the single source for their clients to address most common security and quality assurance needs in the Salesforce platform. Releasing new features and enabling users to quickly and easily deploy, configure, test, and monitor their platform, while still complying with industry regulations and ensuring the highest performance and reliability. All of the above can be done through a release and deployment automation platform.

For organizations using the Salesforce platform, the right solution comes down to meeting a unique set of challenges. Understanding the long-term custom needs and making sure they have a plan which can cover the life cycle management of their data/applications in the clouds, providing proactively secure environments. Establishing access control, authorization, authentication, encryption and other data security protocols are just a few of the must-haves in the current Salesforce marketplace.

Managing the deployment of release management, updates, and patches need to be secure as well, while assuring data integrity and application performance. Security and data governance are also key priorities — server and application logs need to be monitored in real time, data hygiene has to be maintained, and enterprise policies for backup and recovery must be aligned across both on-premise and cloud applications.

In short, a unified platform should empower IT teams to streamline the process to address release, data, analytics, and security needs. Whether you are a small business or a large enterprise, the choice of a Salesforce Release Management, Data Backup and Security Solution comes with a long list of criteria and demands. This solution provider aims to make those processes simple and easy to manage in order for their customers to find success with a single, unified platform.
