Fortifying Your Defenses: Protecting Sensitive Data Against Cyber Threats

Safeguard your Salesforce instance’s data, metadata, and files against malicious software with GRAX.

In today’s digital landscape, safeguarding sensitive information against evolving cyber threats is of paramount importance. With cyber threats constantly evolving and putting enterprises at risk, adopting robust defense strategies is crucial. Luckily, GRAX is a data protection solution that makes it easy to back up data from a Salesforce Org to help guard against data loss and corruption. 

Comprehensive Data Protection with GRAX

With GRAX, Salesforce users can trust that all record and file data that support critical business functions and the underlying configuration metadata of the customizable Salesforce infrastructure are fully protected. But most importantly, it’s where it stores this data that allows for it to be leveraged within your Enterprise Cyber Threat Strategy.

GRAX allows customers to store their Salesforce Data in the Cloud Storage Provider of their choice and within a Cloud Storage Account fully owned by the customer. GRAX supports populating data to AWS S3 storage, Azure Blob Storage, and Google Cloud Storage.  In the cloud, the Salesforce datasets undergo rigorous scanning, analysis, and monitoring for malware and potential threats using advanced ‘out of the box’ malware and virus applications.

GRAX and Your Enterprise Cyber Threat Strategy

By backing up or archiving data using GRAX, Salesforce users own 100% of their data in their customer-owned environment. This enables Salesforce customers to scan their Salesforce data, files, and codebase with their preferred cloud vendor’s security tools, which enhances the overall Depth of Defense against cyber threats. 

Let’s explore some of the most common malware detection applications for each cloud storage provider:

Strengthening Cybersecurity Defense

Leveraging GRAX for Salesforce data protection provides a critical layer of defense to help Salesforce users address threat vectors effectively:

  • Identify potential files that may be Malware – Files can enter Salesforce through multiple channels, such as a user uploading a file, someone sending in an attachment through a support email process, or via some integration. Scanning these files outside of Salesforce and with different types of Malware detection adds another layer of security.
  • Identify malicious code deployed to the environment – Malicious code can be introduced to a Salesforce environment either via a bad actor (disgruntled internal developer) or through deploying managed / unmanaged packages.  
  • Malicious links and SPAM detection – Utilize Bad URL and SPAM detection applications to detect malicious URLs. This is recommended to do during data ingestion, but scanning on the backend increases the depth of defense for these threats.

Leveraging Multiple Layers of Security with ‘Defense in Depth’

Today’s cyber threats continue to morph, disrupt, and put big and small enterprises at risk.  As cybersecurity experts recommend adopting a ‘Defense in Depth’ strategy, GRAX provides an indispensable layer of protection. Multiple layers of protection, continually scanning, analyzing, and learning to help prevent threats and make it harder for cyber threats to impact systems. 

GRAX’s ability to accommodate different cloud storage providers and work with your preferred security tools ensures your defenses remain adaptable and robust, thus increasing your organization’s overall Depth of Defense.
