Salesforce is an investment. You put a lot of time, love and energy into making it work for you and just like anything in life that requires significant investment, sometimes we need to slow down and take a look at the health of whatever it may be, relationship, CRM or otherwise.
The Salesforce Security Health Check is one of the best ways to quickly and accurately look at your org, and ensure you don’t’ have any potential vulnerabilities in the system. Keeping your system safe and secure not only protects you and your business, but your customers as well.
How Does it Work?
The Salesforce Security Health Check tool calculates a score that measures how well your security settings meet either the Salesforce Baseline Standard or your selected custom baseline. This baseline score looks at a number of settings, and then determines if they are high risk, medium risk or low risk. Each of these settings, high, medium and low have associated values for each.
Specifically, the Security Health Check looks at your settings for Login Access Policies, Network Access, Password Policies, Remote Site Settings, and Session Settings groups.
Settings that meet or exceed compliance raise the score, and settings at risk lower the score. Simple as that.
What if your company has different security standards than Salesforce? Not a problem, because interested admins can create custom baseline scores with a quick setup process. This is especially useful if you need higher security standards for a particular setting group, based on your industry or business.
If your business has experienced significant growth since deploying Salesforce, it may be a good idea to perform a Salesforce Security Health Check.
