2. About Cloud Security for Salesforce

OPSWAT Cloud Security for Salesforce helps ensure that your device complies with your company’s security policies before it can access your Salesforce account. It uses the power of our MetaAccess platform to verify the compliance status of each device before granting access.


MetaAccess prevents risky devices from accessing local networks and cloud applications, like Salesforce. Administrators configure device security requirements that devices must meet before they can access a protected network. It enforces those requirements on any device attempting access.

About the OPSWAT Client

The OPSWAT Client resides on each device, collects compliance information and submits it to MetaAccess at a frequency that your MetaAccess administrator defines. In this way, MetaAccess always has a complete and thorough compliance status on every device for which it has responsibility.

How OPSWAT Cloud Security for Salesforce Works

When you successfully log in to your Salesforce account, Salesforce requests that MetaAccess verify whether your device is in compliance with your company’s policies. Since MetaAccess has the data handy when you log in to Salesforce, verification is quick. If your device complies with company security requirements, MetaAccess allows access to Salesforce. If it does not, MetaAccess informs you as such and suggests ways to fix the situation.
