Description Introducing Salesforce Shield
Every industry has its own unique compliance and governance requirements. Salesforce Shield offers a powerful set of tools for any customer who needs an extra level of control to meet internal or regulatory compliance requirements. IT departments and developers can now use point-and-click tools to seamlessly build a new level of trust, transparency, compliance, and governance right into business-critical apps. Platform Encryption
Platform Encryption allows you to natively encrypt your most sensitive data and files at rest across your apps, while retaining important app functionality like search, workflow, and validation rules. Because it’s built natively into App Cloud, you can now encrypt data or files in minutes with no additional hardware or software, while retaining full control over the management of the encryption keys. Event Monitoring
Get visibility into detailed performance, usage, and adoption data across all of your Salesforce apps. See who is accessing critical business data when, and from where. Increase application adoption and understand usage patterns. Event monitoring data can be easily imported into any data visualization or application monitoring tool like Salesforce Analytics Cloud, Splunk, New Relic, or Sumo Logic. Field Audit Trail
Field Audit Trail lets companies know the state and value of your data for any date, at any time. Whether for regulatory compliance, internal governance, audit, or customer service, Field Audit Trail helps you create a forensic data-level audit trail with up to 10 years of history.
