Salesforce is a multitenant platform
Salesforce is a multitenant platform:
It uses a single pool of computing resources to service the needs of many different customers. Salesforce protects your org’s data from all other customer orgs by using a unique identifier, which is associated with each user’s session. When you log in to your org, your subsequent requests are associated with your org using this identifier.
Salesforce uses some of the most advanced technology for internet security available. When you access the application using a Salesforce-supported browser, Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology protects your information using both server authentication and classic encryption, ensuring that your data is safe, secure, and available only to registered users in your org.
In addition, Salesforce is hosted in secure server environments that use firewalls and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.
