Likewise, you are also able to optimize performance or troubleshoot problems.

Meet compliance requirements through encryption

You can use platform encryption to gain total control on the encryption keys, protect sensitive information from unauthorized access, and set data permissions. These are all important in complying with regulations. This feature allows you to keep critical application functionalities such as workflow, validation and search rules when you perform native encryption on your sensitive information across all your Salesforce applications.

Store data securely and accessibility

For example, if you have historical data that are not frequently used, you can archive it to free some storage space and the data could be quickly accessed if ever it was needed. This is an ideal feature for healthcare institutions that need store data about their patients for a long time but may be needed immediately in case of emergency situations.

Field audit trail allows informs you of the value and state of data regardless of date, any time.
