Security for Salesforce

Identify Risks, Take Back Control, Secure Your Data

Our static application security testing (SAST) engine is a core feature of S4, providing automated scanning and analysis of all custom source code in your Salesforce Org including Apex, VisualForce, Lightning Web Components, and related-JavaScript, identifying any security vulnerabilities in the code which could be exploited. S4 SAST scans can also be initiated from your favorite IDE (e.g. VS Code or IntelliJ), aimed at your remote code repositories via GIT (e.g. GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket), or directed to your Salesforce sandbox or production environment.

Based on its SAST scan, S4 then generates a custom runtime testing engine specific to your Salesforce Org which rapidly identifies injection flaws during its interactive application security testing (IAST).  All runtime vulnerabilities contain proof-of-concept exploits, significantly reducing false positives in your report as S4 is only reporting those runtime vulnerabilities that can be executed and verified.

Third-party software libraries are integral components of nearly all Salesforce apps. These referenced software libraries must be updated or replaced when security vulnerabilities are discovered and publicly reported; otherwise, your Org is at risk of breach from these known supply-chain security exploits. Our software composition analysis scanner reports any Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) found in a Salesforce org. Almost every developer relies on outside libraries to get the job done and even if something is secure today, it may be vulnerable tomorrow. Efficient and constant vigilance is required. S4’s Software Composition Analysis scans deliver.

S4 thoroughly reviews your Salesforce org configuration settings against a known list of Salesforce misconfigurations (e.g. content security policy, password settings, access controls, clickjacking, etc.) to support security and privacy compliance in many global standard frameworks including GDPR, ISO27001, PCI-DSS, GLBA, APPI and HIPAA.

Salesforce contains an enterprise’s most sensitive data, from customer personally identifiable information (PII) to key opportunity deal flow, as well as API connections into core backend systems. While annual assessments & penetration tests are a good baseline, new vulnerabilities surface daily. Only continuous and automated coverage can keep you fully aware of your Salesforce security posture and assured of meeting your compliance requirements.
