salesforce encryption


Encryption can be a highly effective way to protect sensitive data in Salesforce, but the cloud encryption offered by most CASB solutions either break application functionality, or even worse, weaken encryption in order to preserve those same operations. Bitglass HarborTM is the only full-strength, operations preserving encryption offering on the market, protected by US Patent 9,047,480 and is used by leaders in financial services, healthcare, and more.

Harbor provides full-strength, operations preserving cloud encryption for both fields and files in Salesforce, ensuring comprehensive data security and privacy, while maintaining full application functionality. The OmniTM multi-protocol proxy architecture, ensures robust, real-time protection from any device. Key management can be integrated with your own premises-based or cloud HSM solutions, or you can leverage Bitglass’ integrated key management system.

Key features include:

  • Patented, FIPS compliant 256-bit AES encryption with 256-bit initialization vectors, provides industry standard, military grade encryption without compromising application functionality

For field-level encryption, Bitglass automatically maps data models and creates simple, point-and-click encrypt and/or decrypt functionality. When using file-level encryption, DLP pattern matching and several other contextual variables can be used to apply encryption conditionally.
