Veeam launches Backup for Salesforce v2: focus on security and recovery

Veeam has introduced version 2 of Veeam Backup for Salesforce, bringing new security features and secure testing and development environments to the solution.

Veeam has offered a backup solution for Salesforce environments for some time. With it, users can secure their Salesforce data and metadata and prevent problems. These include countering and recovering from human, integration and corruption errors.

New functionality

In the second version of Veeam Backup for Salesforce, functionality has been expanded to support multiple Salesforce Cloud environments. Among others, the Salesforce Government and Education Cloud are now also covered by the data protection and recovery solution. Field Service, COQ, Person Accounts and managed packages are also now supported by the dedicated Veeam backup solution.

In addition, more security functionality has been added with Salesforce Single Sign On (SSO) and multi-factor authentication (MFA).

Furthermore, Veeam Backup for Salesforce v2 now has restore functionality from a production or sandbox environment to a separate sandbox environment. This allows developers to better test, solve or develop projects with the ability to restore production to a sandbox environment.

Different versions

Veeam Backup for Salesforce v2 is a standalone addition for the Veeam platform. The solution can be purchased through Veeam partners, but also, for example, from Salesforce’s own marketplace, the AppExchange.

In addition, a Veeam Backup for Salesforce Community Edition is available. This version provides fully functional free backup and recovery of Salesforce data for organizations with 50 Salesforce licenses or less.
