That's fine, because I won't work with incompetent ****s who get their security breached repeatedly.

Quote:
Salesforce.com got hacked and the only things worse than the very large amounts of customer data stolen from the hosting software giant were the lack of timely customer notification and completely evasive responses by Salesforce.com to its customers. The Washington Post first reported the hack against salesforce.com and unleashed on customers of SunTrust Banks. Then MarketWatch reported another salesforce.com phishing scam against customer ADP (Automatic Data Processing) and other salesforce.com customers. As first reported by the Washington Post on October 19:

"A database of e-mail addresses and other contact information stolen from business software provider Salesforce.com is being used in an ongoing series of targeted e-mail attacks against customers of several Salesforce.com business clients, including SunTrust and Automatic Data Processing Inc. (ADP), one of the nation's largest payroll and tax services providers."

I was the project leader for the sales & distribution modules when our company decided to implement SAP as our ERP. We went from five legacy systems to one.
Used to get calls from these guys all the time. A couple of them even suggested that someone in our senior management team suggested I meet with them. Every time I asked who that was, the conversation basically ended. No use for them

The ecosystem is vibrant, and at the moment, this is how I make my living. One of the big fundamental flaws with so many of these developers is that they NEED to implement encryption at rest, meaning when it's just sitting in the database. The project that I'm on is with a financial services client, and encryption is an extremely high priority. There are tools to assist with implementing this encryption, but it doesn't just come out of the box.

Lotta fly-by-night outfits with 20-somethings doing development. You get what you pay for.

BUT, I agree that SF should have prevented these attacks in the first place, but there is a definitely an extra layer of protection that can be implemented by those that know what they are doing.

Salesforce wouldn't have dropped us but...

We used it last year. Not this year...or ever again.

My bosses would not go for this political BS.
