Data security is a constant concern. There are ever-evolving threats that have the potential to impact the stability of your system, privacy of your customers, and your company’s ability to remain in compliance with government regulations.
A Salesforce security scanner can come in many forms, but it can be the difference between addressing a vulnerability and experiencing a data loss event.
These scans can investigate your applications and updates throughout the DevOps pipeline, or they can analyze you Salesforce environment itself.
But how does a Salesforce security scanner affect the code that makes up your DevOps projects?
These tools have the potential to find bugs and errors that might later be exploited by bad actors to infiltrate your system. This is why tools like static code analysis have become a necessity for companies that value error-free products, high release velocity, and maintained levels of data security.
But how do you choose between available Salesforce code scanners? Why do you need one in the first place? And how will your code be impacted?
