Cloud Coach Security Policy

Security is at the heart of Cloud Coach’s application development. This is why we developed our products to run exclusively on the Salesforce platform. Our core information security principles are: 

  • Confidentiality: Prevent the disclosure of information to unauthorized individuals or systems. 
  • Integrity: Maintain and assure the accuracy and consistency of data over its entire lifecycle. 
  • Availability: Ensure the information is available when needed.

Cloud Coach is committed to achieving and maintaining these principles and the trust of our customers. Integral to this is providing a robust security and privacy program that carefully considers security and data protection across our services, including data submitted by customers to our services (“customer data”). Our customers are in a wide range of verticals, some with stringent security requirements, including financial services, healthcare, technology, energy, and government.

Salesforce AppExchange Security Review

Cloud Coach applications are submitted to Salesforce as part of the AppExchange Security Review process. Salesforce provides the AppExchange Security Review program to assess the security posture of ISV applications published on the AppExchange against industry best practices for security.

Disaster Recovery

Because Cloud Coach applications are 100% Force.com-native, all data processed by Cloud Coach applications resides on the Salesforce cloud platform owned, operated and managed by Salesforce.

Data Encryption

Cloud Coach relies on Salesforce platform capabilities for encryption of data in transit. Salesforce uses industry-accepted encryption products to protect customer data and communications during transmissions between a customer’s network and the Cloud Coach applications, including 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), and PCI-DSS L1 Compliance. Additionally, customer data is encrypted during transmission between data centers for replication purposes.
