Salesforce is a highly trusted secure platform that offers users a raft of options to secure their data, manage multiple-level access and track user behaviour.
It provides a highly scalable, transactional database with a fantastic user-extensible structure. The database is secure, providing the option to encrypt data at rest, and is located in data centres around the world, so you don’t need to worry about data sovereignty.
This is a crucial consideration because, for most organisations, HCM constitutes the biggest data security risk, owing to the personally identifiable nature of the information it holds. Employee data such as addresses, salaries, bank details, medical information, etc. are highly sensitive, and if you’re storing all this locally on spreadsheets rather than on a cloud-based workspace, the chances of it being shared either accidentally or maliciously are vastly increased.
Running our software on the Salesforce cloud platform means our customers benefit from the platform’s stringent information security, various role-based security and access options that ensure only the right people can view sensitive data, and audit controls that enable admins to track what is accessed and edited, by who, and when.
It means compliance with stringent GDPR regulations is much less of a headache, and our customers can claim adherence to globally recognised security frameworks like Cyber Essentials and ISO27001. And because data is digitised and centralised as part of the cloud implementation, subject access requests, storage and retention policies are comparatively simple to establish and execute.
In addition, the solution is hosted in Salesforce own data centres located around the world with comprehensive privacy and security certifications.
The benefits of running single HR and Payroll on Salesforce also means that you only use one database, avoiding risky integrations, duplicating data entry or information leakage.
