Shield Platform Encryption in Salesforce

Shield Platform Encryption gives your data a whole new layer of security while preserving critical platform functionality. It enables you to encrypt sensitive data at rest, and not just when transmitted over a network, so your company can confidently comply with privacy policies, regulatory requirements, and contractual obligations for handling private data.

Classic encryption lets you protect a special type of custom text field, which you create for that purpose. With Shield Platform Encryption you can encrypt a variety of widely-used standard fields, long with some custom fields and many kinds of files. Shield Platform Encryption also supports person accounts, cases, search, approval processes, and other key Salesforce features.
