25 Apr Salesforce Security Health Check
One of the core features of a multi-tenant platform is the use of a single pool of computing resources to service the needs of many different customers. Salesforce protects your organization’s data from all other customer organizations by using a unique organization identifier, which is associated with each user’s session. Once you log in to your organization, your subsequent requests are associated with your organization, using this identifier.
In addition, Salesforce is hosted in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.
Security Health Check
As an admin, you can use Health Check to identify and fix potential vulnerabilities in your security settings, all from a single page. A summary score shows how your org measures against the Salesforce recommended baseline. You can also upload up to five custom baselines to use instead of the Salesforce baseline.
From Setup, enter Health Check in the Quick Find box, then select Health Check.
In the baseline dropdown , choose the Salesforce Baseline Standard or a custom baseline. The Salesforce Baseline Standard consists of recommended values for Certificate and Key Management, Login Access Policies, Network Access, Password Policies, Remote Site Settings, and Session Settings groups . If you change settings to be less restrictive than what’s in the Salesforce Baseline Standard, your health check score can decrease.
Your high- and medium-risk settings are shown with information about how they compare against the standard value . To remediate a risk, edit the setting or use Fix Risks to quickly change settings to your selected baseline’s recommended values without leaving the Health Check page. Your settings that meet the selected standard are listed at the bottom. You can import or export a custom baseline .
Suppose that you changed your password minimum length from 8 (the default value) to 5, and changed other Password Policies settings to be less restrictive. These changes make your users’ passwords more vulnerable to guessing and other brute force attacks. As a result, your overall score decreases, and the settings are listed as risks.
