Compliance requirements are on the rise

Last year’s report highlighted that teams are bringing more business processes onto their Salesforce orgs. As orgs have expanded and house more data, teams need to comply with a broader array of compliance frameworks. A huge 82% are already compliant with at least one security framework and over half are working towards additional frameworks in the coming year.

  • How often teams experience issues at audit because of their Salesforce orgs
  • What tools and processes help teams keep their orgs compliant

Some backup solutions are leaving teams vulnerable

Most teams now realize the importance of backing up their Salesforce orgs, with only 16% saying they don’t have plans to back up their Salesforce data. But, of those who do have backups in place, there are big disparities between the frequency of backup runs and the speed of recovery.

  • Which solutions enable teams to back up their data the most frequently
  • The average restoration times for the different backup solutions
