How DataArchiva Ensures Top-notch Security While Archiving Salesforce Data

Now, you have shifted the entire business process to your coveted CRM and got a Salesforce admin to manage the aspects. And, as the business went scaling high, your admin has already started nagging you with complaints. 

Was it his fault? No! 

If you get in-depth with Salesforce systems, you would know that having a Salesforce license is not enough. To have your Salesforce work for your business, there will be ten or let’s say a hundred more applications in place, feeding your system with tons of app data sitting at your primary storage space, eating away your admin’s reporting productivity over time. 

Do we have a solution to this? Yes! DataArchiva ‌provides adept archiving solutions in Salesforce that help ‌create data storage space instead of contributing to your Salesforce data growth. With secure connecting systems, DataArchiva allows you to continue storing your customer data at your preferred archival destination, instead of piling it on your current org library.

The following are the reasons why ?

Thereby, it ensures better Salesforce data protection, with no additional maintenance cost for having a protected live org. 

7) Preserve Access Control of the Archived Records

In Salesforce, access control ensures that only authorized sales representatives can view and edit customer data, safeguarding sensitive information and complying with data privacy regulations. This determines who can access, view, edit, and delete data within the Salesforce platform. This is crucial for maintaining data security, confidentiality, and regulatory compliance. 

DataArchiva smartly maintains role-based access control, ensuring precise permission management for both archiving and restoring the archived data, back to Salesforce. In a way, it can extrapolate your Salesforce org security extensions by applying rules of profiles & permission sets to your archived records.
