Understanding the Einstein Trust Layer

The Einstein Trust Layer constitutes a secure AI architecture embedded within the Salesforce platform.

Built upon the Einstein Trust Layer, Einstein Copilot for Tableau and other Tableau AI features inherit its security, governance, and Trust capabilities.

The Einstein Trust Layer is a secure AI architecture, built into the Salesforce platform. It is a set of agreements, security technology, and data and privacy controls used to keep your company safe while you explore generative AI solutions.

Tableau has been on the journey to help people see and understand their data for over two decades. Thanks to data analysts, this mission has been a success and will continue to be a success. Data analysts are the backbone of organizations that champion data culture, capture business requirements, prep data, and create data content for end users.

Data Access and Privacy

Who Accesses Your Data?

A primary concern among our customers revolves around data access. Rest assured, the Einstein Trust Layer enforces strict policies to safeguard your organization’s data. Third-party LLM providers, including Open AI and Azure Open AI, adhere to a zero data retention policy. This means that data sent to LLMs isn’t stored; once processed, both the prompt and response are promptly forgotten. Additionally, each Einstein Copilot for Tableau customer receives their own Data Cloud instance, securely storing prompts and responses for auditing purposes.

Data Residency and Access Control

Einstein Copilot for Tableau respects permissions, row-level security, and data policies within Tableau Cloud, ensuring that only authorized personnel within your organization access specific data. Whether using Einstein Copilot or not, data access is restricted based on organizational roles and permissions.

Data Handling and Processing

Data Sent Outside of Tableau Cloud Site

Einstein Copilot for Tableau operates within the confines of your Tableau site, scanning connected data sources to create a summary context. This summarized data is sent to third-party LLM providers for vectorization, enabling accurate interpretation of user queries. Importantly, the zero data retention policy ensures that summarized data is forgotten post-vectorization.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) Data

To enhance data privacy, Einstein Copilot for Tableau employs data masking for PII data. This technique replaces sensitive information with placeholder text, ensuring privacy without sacrificing context. While our detection models strive for accuracy, continuous evaluation and refinement are paramount to maintain trust.

Result Trustworthiness

Ensuring Safe and Accurate Results

Einstein Copilot for Tableau employs Toxicity Confidence Scoring to identify harmful inputs and responses. By combining rule-based filters and AI models, potentially harmful content is filtered and flagged for review. Furthermore, accuracy benchmarks ensure that generated results align closely with human-authored ones, bolstering trust in the platform.

Future Trust Enhancements

Trust remains an ongoing focus for our teams. Initiatives such as a BYO LLM solution and improved disambiguation capabilities are underway to further enhance trustworthiness. Continuous feedback, testing, and iteration drive our efforts to maintain your trust in Einstein Copilot for Tableau and the Einstein Trust Layer.

Data analysis and data-driven decision-making have been part of the vocabulary in organizations over the years. And, while data analysis is one of the most in-demand tech skills sought by employers today, not everyone in an organization has “analyst” in their job title—myself included. Yet, so many of us use data daily to make informed decisions.

The rise of generative AI presents a significant opportunity for us to bring transformative benefits to analytics. Businesses are eager to embrace generative AI because it can help save time, provide faster insights, and empower analysts to be even more productive with an AI assistant—freeing analysts to focus on delivering high-quality, data-driven insights.

Is Tableau replacing Einstein analytics?

Einstein Analytics has a new name. Say hello to Tableau CRM. Everything about how it works stays the same, just with that snazzy new name. When Tableau joined the Salesforce family, we brought together analytics capabilities of incredible depth and power.

What is the difference between Einstein analytics and Tableau?

If you’re only planning on analyzing Salesforce data, Einstein Analytics would probably make the most sense for you. However, if you need to analyze information that is coming from all over the place, Tableau will give your users more options.

Tableau GPT infuses automation in every part of analytics – from preparation to communicating and consuming the data. The intended audience of Tableau GPT is not just data analysts but also business users at all hierarchical levels! Data Preparation is still one of the biggest challenges data analysts face today.

While trusting generative AI with sensitive data presents challenges, the Salesforce Einstein teams remain committed to transparency, security, and innovation.

Your trust is our top priority, and we’re dedicated to earning and maintaining it every step of the way.
