Protect Critical Sales And Customer Data

Your Salesforce data is vital to your organization. It should be backed up daily and automatically. And it should be easy to restore in case of a data loss event, such as accidental deletion, third-party application sync errors, malicious insiders or hactivism.

Salesforce's backup policy is similar to other SaaS vendors in that their backup covers any errors that may occur on their side-not yours. And while they offer you the ability to export all of your data once weekly, the process is error-prone and it can become costly, especially when you need to restore data.

That's where Spanning Backup for Salesforce comes in.

Cloud-to-cloud backup of Salesforce data improves backup reliability and reduces the time it takes administrators to manage the backup process. As a trusted SaaS data protection provider, Spanning makes it easy to protect your critical Salesforce data from loss, meet data governance requirements and keep your users productive.

Spanning Backup for Salesforce is the first and only backup and recovery solution delivered directly within the Salesforce interface. Preventing data loss is easy with Spanning Backup's automated, daily backups. Restoring data is quick and easy with point-in-time, field-level restores-you can even restore data into another Salesforce org. With Spanning, both administrators and end users can get lost or deleted data back quickly from within the Salesforce interface.
