Salesforce is an integral platform in many government & public sector organizations. However, as a Salesforce user, you are completely responsible for your data security after any custom development or modifications to your Org. With Salesforce containing an organization's most sensitive data, from personally identifiable information (PII) to classified government information, it is a key responsibility to protect that data.
In 2021, as mandated by Executive Order 14028, NIST published “Guidelines on Minimum Standards for Developer Verification of Software,” which outlines the minimum application security testing requirements for software used by the US Government:
While Salesforce itself follows these strict guidelines, rarely are they followed by Salesforce users and consultants who develop custom software and apps for Salesforce. Also new vulnerabilities surface daily in open-source third-party software libraries like jquery & log4j.
Only continuous and full-spectrum coverage can keep you fully aware of your Salesforce security posture and assured of meeting your compliance requirements. The general-purpose security testing tools available often miss critical vulnerabilities specific to Salesforce completely, as well as generate high rates of false positives that delay development.
This is where DigitSec comes in. DigitSec S4 is the only comprehensive application security testing platform purpose-built for Salesforce. It also is the ONLY solution meeting the new NIST testing standards in the Salesforce ecosystem, combining static code analysis (SAST), interactive runtime testing (IAST), software composition analysis (SCA), and security config review into a single process.
DigitSec S4 reduces risk and accelerates development by providing continuous Salesforce security & compliance monitoring. S4 provides true DevSecOps for Salesforce with no prior security expertise required. Each S4 security finding defines the vulnerability type, including a severity rating and remediations suggestions for every bug.
In its free trial, DigitSec offers a complimentary pentest of your Salesforce Org complete with an executive summary report of your current Salesforce security & compliance posture.
