Why You Need a Managed Service Provider for Your Salesforce Data

The cost of backing up your Salesforce data is like an iceberg. What may seem like the main cost factor of your backup is, in fact, just the tip. In this case, the cost of the software that facilitates the backup is a significant consideration factor. However, countless other factors contribute to the overall cost and performance regarding backing up your Salesforce data, such as storage hardware, network, technical resource time, etc. Time and time again, our customers at CapStorm have leaned on us for help and best practice suggestions. We have heard these concerns and designed a managed service to help customers lower their costs while still facilitating their crucial Salesforce Data Management activities.

In today’s technological age, data protection is more critical than ever. As companies increasingly rely on the Cloud to store and manage sensitive information, it has become essential to ensure that this data remains secure at all times. This is especially true for businesses that use Salesforce as their primary customer relationship management tool. That’s where having a managed service provider can come in handy – you’ll have a team in your back pocket that can help keep your Salesforce data safe from cyber threats while improving overall system performance. The good news is CapStorm can now be your crew behind the scenes as our debut managed service product, CS:Managed is now available.

Automated Backups Make Salesforce Data More Reliable

When it comes to your business, you need your data to be up-to-date and verifiable to ensure accuracy and completeness. One of the most important benefits of using a managed service is the increased reliability you’ll have with your Salesforce backups which means your Salesforce data backs up automatically and incrementally. This means that if something happens to your Salesforce org, you can be confident that your recent backup facilitates restoration of your data and ensures your business is back on track. As a result, your data is safe, whether through an accident, user error, or even a malicious attack. 

The best part? All of this is done without any intervention on your part. Think of it in terms of “set it and forget it.” Your backup is waiting when you need it. With your automated backup in hand, you’re able to not only recover from data loss quickly, but you’ll also be able easily to develop a disaster recovery plan to have on hand as well

Data Encryption Allows For Enhanced Security

It’s essential to encrypt all sensitive information to keep customer and company data safe. That’s one more reason to have a managed service provider, as your business can take advantage of enhanced security through data encryption, using industry standard AWS best practices. This means that all data stored in Salesforce will be encrypted, making it much more difficult for hackers to access. 

With this increased security, you’ll also benefit from the peace of mind of knowing a team of experts is managing your data. Here at CapStorm, we have the knowledge and experience to protect your Salesforce data, ensuring it remains safe and secure. In addition, with enhanced security through data encryption, your information is safe from hackers and other threats – whether internal or external.

Better Efficiency Means Better Cost Savings

Salesforce data protection can be a big challenge for companies. Working with a managed service provider means savings through improved efficiency, which leads to decreased costs for your company. There are several reasons why having higher efficiency will positively impact your business:

  1. You can avoid the high costs associated with data loss. An IBM study in 2022 found the global average cost of a data breach to be over $4 million. That can be a detrimental expense that your company can avoid.
  2. Improving your salesforce data backup and recovery processes will make them less expensive and more efficient. That means having more time your Salesforce admins can devote to other, higher-priority projects.
  3. With a managed service provider, your Salesforce environment will always run smoothly and efficiently, avoiding costly downtime and disruptions.

As we said earlier, the costs to your business are more than just the physical dollars going out. By avoiding data loss, improving backup and recovery processes, and keeping your Salesforce environment running smoothly, you’ll have other ways to improve your bottom line.
