Think about what’s at stake if Salesforce suffered a breach…
- American Express, Philips, Vodafone, Virgin, Western Union, GE, the U.S. government, and 150,000 organizations risk their communications leaking to the public
- This includes trade secrets, financial documents, passwords, and bank details
- Hackers could believably impersonate bank employees or government officials
It’s a terrifying concept for Salesforce customers, and just as frightening for Salesforce themselves; if a breach like that happened, their $61b company would suffer tremendously.
A company as well-known as Salesforce has a huge target on its back, so it needs to have the highest security standards even while scaling up and innovating rapidly.
