Everything You Need to Know About Salesforce Multi-Factor Authentication
If you’re a Salesforce user, you may have received an email from Salesforce saying they will require you to enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) by February of 2022. And . . . we think that's a good idea! As phishing attacks increase and the global threat landscape continues to change, why wouldn’t you want to implement stronger security measures? Here are answers to some questions you may have about Salesforce multi-factor authentication. What is multi-factor authentication? Instead of just a username and password, multi-factor authentication requires two or more pieces of evidence (factors). One factor is something you know, like your username and password. The other factors are verification methods that you have – like an app on your phone or a USB key provided to you. Interested in learning more about MFA and Cloud Security? View this post. Why should you want multi-factor authentication? Usernames and passwords are no longer […]
1 Key Salesforce Security Best Practice
We've seen many assume their Salesforce orgs are secure enough: why should they care about FMT's recommended key Salesforce security best practice? Consider that phishing attacks are increasing and 2020 stood out. 88% of organizations around the world experienced spear phishing attempts. Remote workers are being targeted more than before. And in a successful attack, nearly 60% of organizations lose data, nearly 50% are infected with ransomware, and nearly 35% of organizations experienced financial losses. Those are scary statistics. How can we keep our Salesforce data secure? Let's say you implemented Salesforce a while ago and everything is working well. It's flexible enough so that you can easily change a picklist value or add a little automation. But you probably haven't thought about security since you implemented Salesforce. In my experience, most implementations configure data access (which users can see or edit which records and which fields). But very little […]
Leveraging AI with Salesforce Einstein Chatbots
Are you ready for an Artificial Intelligence Chatbot? In 2018 Gartner predicted that Chatbots will power 85% of all customer service interactions by 2020. It’s 2020 now and they were probably overstating the rapidity of AI Chatbot adoption.  But they weren’t that far off the mark. Chatbot technology has made rapid advances and our understanding of what makes a good Chatbot has also grown. Now that our know-how and the technology are ripe – should your company start implementing AI Chatbots? We’ll look at Salesforce Einstein Chatbots to see if we can answer that question. What is a Chatbot? A Chatbot is an application that simulates human conversation via text message. It allows your customer to talk to a computer that then directs the customer to the resources that they request. Chatbots allow you to add an additional channel of communication to your sales and support strategies.  You may have […]
Lightning is Coming This October – What Does This Mean?
You have probably received emails from Salesforce telling you that in October with the Winter 2020 release, Lightning will be turned on. What does this mean for your organization? We answered some of the most frequently asked questions for you and also discuss how Lightning’s features can help your organization become more productive. Question #1. I’ve seen them, but what does that mean? Right now, if you are in Salesforce “classic,” you would have to click ‘Setup’ and flip a few switches to turn on Lightning. Keep in mind, those switches are going to be set to “On” this coming October. Question #2. How does that impact me? Well, it means that users who have the permissions to use Lightning will be able to switch back and forth between the two user interfaces. Question #3. So that doesn’t mean everyone will automatically be in Lightning and we won’t have Classic […]
