The cloud makes it possible for organizations to outsource certain aspects of their IT systems to capable service providers, with cloud companies repeatedly demonstrating that their systems can outperform on-site solutions in terms of effectiveness, efficiency, and security. Cloud-based services are also less resource-intensive for the client company, reducing operational complexity.
The cloud does not reduce the risk of end-users being compromised, or endpoints being infected. Although your content is being securely hosted in the cloud, targeted attacks or simple human error can still allow an attacker to access your data.
F-Secure Cloud Protection for Salesforce complements and strengthens Salesforce's native security capabilities, suppressing the risk posed by files and URLs uploaded by users.

Cloud-based services provide alternatives to traditional IT infrastructure, and often come with substantial security advantages. They also employ a shared responsibility model for protecting your content. What does this mean in practice?
As organizations move further along in leveraging cloud-based services, more responsibilities are shifted to the providers. This translates into cloud vendors and cloud clients both being liable for failures in the features under their control. To put it simply: if it happens in the cloud, your provider is obligated to secure it.
This doesn't mean that you get absolved of all your responsibilities, however. Everything that enters the cloud from your organization's endpoint devices is on you. Industry-leading IT research and advisory firm Gartner predicts that by 2020, 95% of cloud security failures will be the result of client oversight. In light of this forecast, it is essential that companies fully understand their shared responsibility models, and are capable of implementing relevant security procedures.
