Is your SaaS data protected?

Protecting your valuable data is critical to the efficient operations of any business. Most companies apply data protection best practices to their on-premises data, however data residing in the cloud is often overlooked. Proper data protection is essential for cloud based CRM platforms like Salesforce, which contain valuable business and customer information.

Commvault integrates with the native Salesforce APIs to provide proper data protection, retention, and recoverability. Automated processes reduce overhead and complexity while giving you advanced abilities like encryption, search, scheduling, data masking, sandboxing, storage reduction, and data comparison. This means your data is protected, recoverable, and managed the way you want it to be.

Why SFDC protection

Like any data, Salesforce has the potential for data corruption or loss, either as a result of user error or even malicious intent.  Regardless of the cause, the end result is loss of productivity, and an impact to revenue. You need a comprehensive solution that enables you full protection coverage, as well as recovery options that fit your various restore scenarios.

What we protect

Not all solutions are the same when it comes to data protection.  Be confident that custom objects, files, and content are all being protected and can be restored.

Commvault protects:

  • Standard objects – Default objects used to store data. Accounts, contacts.
  • Custom objects – Custom objects created used to store data. Invoices.
  • Files – Documents, attachments, libraries
  • Salesforce CRM content – Metadata. Layouts, app settings, profiles
  • Relationships – Links between objects. Parent and child


Production data residing in the cloud should not only be protected to the same cloud location. Having the ability to create multiple copies of your data in the cloud, another cloud, or even to an on-premises location provides you with data security beyond what basic solutions offer.  Salesforce themselves recommend a third-party backup solution be used instead of their native solution.  Ask yourself this question: “How impactful would Salesforce data corruption be to your business without the ability to recover?”  With Commvault, you can rest assured that you’re protected.
