How does a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) safeguard their organization against malware using Salesforce as an entry point into the corporate network? WithSecure™’s CISO faced this exact challenge in 2017 when transitioning from an alternate CRM application to Salesforce. How to secure data with Salesforce and WithSecure? During a security audit, our team discovered that content entering and exiting Salesforce was not being scanned, leaving the system vulnerable to cyber threats like malware. Unable to find a suitable solution on the market, we developed our own.
