In this week’s episode, Drew discusses maintaining geolocation and data residency requirements with your Salesforce data. When it comes to your data, it’s imperative that you’re able to control who has access as well as where it can be accessed, to make sure it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. Luckily there’s an easy solution to maintain compliance no matter what regulation requirements you might face.

With CapStorm, you have the ability to replicate your Salesforce data model – schema and metadata – behind your firewall. That means you have autonomous control over where the data is hosted, how it’s classified, and how it abides by any specific geographical or regulatory requirements you have to abide by. No matter the need, our dynamic technology enables data use while simultaneously preserving compliance methods within the enterprise data fabric.

Tune in each Tuesday for more episodes of Data Unleashed, and discover all the tips and tricks to help you get more value from your investment in Salesforce. In addition, we would love to hear from you if you are looking for a fast, easy, and highly secure way to protect your Salesforce data & metadata!

Video Transcription

Hello, my name is Drew Niermann, and you’re watching Data Unleashed, the video blog series dedicated to helping you get more out of your investment in Salesforce.

Something that I’ve been hearing a lot about lately is data residency and geolocation requirements. For example, if we pull data, push data, store data, compute data, where does it live? Who has access to it? And how do we control to make sure that the wrong people don’t get access to the wrong data in the wrong data center and the wrong geography? 

Now, the company that I work for is called CapStorm and we specialize in Salesforce data management and compliance. You’re going to be happy that this episode is very short, because the answer is very simple. If you are having data residency or geolocation requirements for Salesforce data off-platform, we give you the ability to replicate that Salesforce data model data schema and metadata into your database behind your own firewalls. 

And we’re agnostic to where you host it. So we don’t care if you host it in the United States, Mexico, Canada doesn’t matter. You have autonomous control over where the data is hosted, how it’s encrypted, what masking rules are applied, how it’s classified, and how it’s brought into compliance with whatever the latest set of cross-jurisdictional, geographical regulatory requirements that you have to abide by. 

If this is something that’s of interest to you for information security reasons, please drop me a note on LinkedIn, my name is Drew Niermann. Or send a message to the CapStorm team at Thank you so much for watching. This is Data Unleashed.
