Salesforce Enterprise Cybersecurity for File Management & Attachments - Adaptus

Hackers continue to evolve their tactics at lightening-speed and are leaving Fortune 500 and government organizations struggling to keep pace. This is a serious issue, particularly as they become more creative in their efforts to embed malicious code within standard business operations documentation – pdf files, graphic files, Microsoft office documents, etc.

And, given enterprise-wide integration of applications to create enterprise-wide systems, the risk of enabling hackers to steal corporate data is exponential. If just one employee within the network opens an attachment infected with malware, the affect may be catastrophic.

The previous philosophies of reliance on anti-virus software installed on network hardware (even with virus scanning gateways) and employee computers, has proven to be insufficient for a long list of technical reasons,  and does not provide protection against files uploaded by users outside the immediate corporate network (public website forms, etc.).

Bottom line — many organizations have failed to adapt their thinking when it comes to cybersecurity outside of their direct hardware, and it’s costing them millions. Government fines, ransomware demands, and downtime to recover lost/corrupt files equate to millions in lost revenue.

To combat the issue, risk management for file management applications/libraries must be reconsidered, both on-premises and in the cloud.  And, given the nature of corporate infrastructure and the integration of multiple, complimentary applications to create enterprise systems, it is important to apply cybersecurity throughout.
