Secure Your Business-Critical Data With Our Salesforce Backup and Recovery

Salesforce cannot protect you from data loss at your end due to human error, malicious intent, outages, sync errors, hackers, or malware.

When you add to the equation the likelihood of employee errors and the frequency of malware attacks and security breaches, you have a significant cybersecurity gap that can cause business-critical data loss without any chance of recovery. 

Salesforce is a powerful platform. However, native backup options like the Export backup function, only perform a weekly or monthly backup, do not support sandboxes, and can only be downloaded within 48 hours of receiving them. Native recovery options like the Data Loader are cumbersome and time-consuming.

Although your data is hosted by Salesforce, maintaining control and protection of your business data in case of security threats or accidental deletion is ultimately your company’s responsibility. Salesforce recommends, “It is important for customers to develop a data backup and recovery strategy as part of their overall data management and security model”. As do Gartner and Forrester. Data regulatory laws like the GDPR and HIPAA also mandate demonstrable recoverability.

View our Frequently Asked Questions on: Salesforce backup, Salesforce data retention policy, and data restore options.

Salesforce has retired its: Data Recovery service.  Your data is not secure without a 3rd party backup solution.  Reach our blog post on Salesforce end of its data recovery service.

A data retention policy is a statement agreed by all the business stakeholders of how long data will be stored by the organization, with some organizations also including details around the if, when, where, and how the data is deleted, anonymized, or otherwise treated.

  1. Catalogue your data.
  2. Review your data and make some critical organizational decisions
  3. Establish procedures for the removal of data

Once data has been deleted, it will reside in the Salesforce recycle bin for a maximum of 15 days. During this period, known as the “soft-delete” stage, data can be restored back into the org. If data is emptied from the recycle bin, or the 15-day retention period expires, the data becomes “hard-deleted” and is not able to be recovered. You can, however, access said data by using the Salesforce workbench. If data is deleted from the database, the deletion becomes permanent and the data is only accessible or recoverable if a backup solution is in place or via the Salesforce Data Recovery service.

Deleted records in the “soft-delete” stage may be restored by using the un-delete operation within the recycle bin. However, the un-delete operation cannot be used on records or data that has been manually purged from the recycle bin or has exceeded the 15-day retention period. If this is the case, the data is no longer recoverable without a backup solution.

In Salesforce you are never able to delete a user. … The benefit is deactivating users is that they aren’t using a license, but you get to have all their historical data. So while a user is frozen and once you have cleaned up everything assigned to them, then you should deactivate that user.

To find and restore records using the Salesforce workbench:

  1. Prior to running the search query, Select Include under Deleted and archived records.
  2. Once the Id for the record is located, choose Undelete from the data drop-down at the top of the page.
  3. Enter the Id and follow the prompts on the screen to restore the record.

For many organizations, the countless records of CRM data stored within Salesforce is indispensable to company success and business continuity. Salesforce provides complete protection from fault on their end, offers varied options for manual backup within the platform and can assist directly in recovering lost data if absolutely necessary. However, they cannot protect your data from threats beyond their control and the native backup and last-resort options come with numerous restrictions, limited capabilities, lengthy completion times and a hefty price tag.  Salesforce themselves recommend investing in a full-featured, third-party backup and recovery solution, such as CloudAlly.

Up until recently (2019) the data recovery cost according to Salesforce, “The price for this service is a flat rate of $10,000,” and “The process must be performed manually and usually takes a minimum of 6-8 weeks to complete.” Plus, there is no guarantee of recovery.

In 2020 Salesforce further iterated that native options for backup & restore are unavailable.  Learn More

Hence, 3rd party backup with CloudAlly is the safe & secure way to backup your data.
