Salesforce Data Classification
Start making your data work for you — identify PII, manage compliance requirements and improve security with automated Salesforce data classification
Find and Track Your Most Sensitive Salesforce Data
Salesforce is home to an increasingly large amount of privileged and sensitive data. In order to protect that data — and comply with user privacy requests — you need to know where it is.
Salesforce’s built-in data classification tool is a great place to start with this, but it’s time-consuming to configure and limited in what it can do.
Strongpoint automates data classification in Salesforce and gives you an extra layer of audibility over PII stored in the platform. Analyze access at the user, profile and permission set level, add additional controls to protect your most sensitive data from threats, and generate airtight reporting on everything — without leaving Salesforce.
Read on to learn how to take Salesforce data classification to the next level with Strongpoint.

Why Data Classification?
How It Works
Strongpoint automatically scans objects, fields and files in your Org to find and classify sensitive data.
Normally, this work would need to be done manually, tying up your IT and Systems teams for days. But Strongpoint’s intelligent classification rules quickly and accurately find PII and other sensitive data, tailored to your geographic, language and compliance scope.

With data in your Org classified according to sensitivity level, you can easily learn more about how and where it’s stored — and where additional scrutiny is required.
Strongpoint’s impact analysis shows you how custom fields and objects that contain sensitive data are connected to other customizations in your Org. With it, you can flag high-risk changes in advance and apply appropriate controls to protect that data — and prove it to auditors.

In Salesforce, data classification and access controls work hand-in-hand to ensure that only authorized users have access to sensitive information.
Strongpoint comes with a suite of access review tools that let you drill down on users, profiles and permission sets for a granular look at object- and field-level access. Once your data is classified by sensitivity level/regulatory framework, pre-built reports show you who can view, edit or delete it, and identify potential security gaps or red flags.

The problem with most data classification projects is that they’re static — and unless you have the resources to run them regularly, you have no way of tracking how things change over time.
With Strongpoint, Salesforce data classification is fully integrated with our change monitoring and change control tools. Get instant insights when classification change, use pre-built reporting to identify technical debt that can be eliminated, and maintain a more secure, more manageable Org going forward.
