Security is an important aspect when connecting business-critical data to the cloud. Telerik Platform is designed with security in mind, but to take advantage of it to the fullest, you need to ensure that your Salesforce application is set up according to the best practices.
The Salesforce user account that you specify when creating a Data Connector determines the level of access that your mobile application will have to your Salesforce data.
Ideally, you will create a dedicated Salesforce user account to use with Telerik Platform. This will allow you to set its profile and permissions as restrictively as possible to ensure maximum security.
Note that Telerik Platform requires that the "API Enabled" permission is granted to the Salesforce user account.
When you use Data Connectors to read data, this data is transferred from Salesforce to Telerik Platform. The data goes the other way around when you are inserting or updating items.
To minimize the chance of intercepting traffic, Telerik Platform communicates with Salesforce over a secured connection using SSL encryption. Encryption is enabled by default and cannot be disabled.
