Malicious Insiders
Malware and Ransomware


Comprehensive protection

Back it all up: base objects, custom objects, metadata, attachments, files, apps, and Chatter posts – with no limits on storage, versions, and durations. Back up data using your own encryption keys at no additional cost.

Spanning runs in the background, providing daily, automated backup at the time you specify – and discovers changes in your Salesforce org automatically for backup.
On-demand backup
You can run a manual backup any time, on-screen from Spanning in your Salesforce environment — useful before major imports or new customizations.
Status monitoring
View your customizable Spanning dashboard for the state of your most recent backups — with record counts of changes for your most important object types — and Salesforce API usage. Get backup and recovery notifications through Chatter posts and email.
Transparent reporting
Use the audit log for an immutable, detailed record of every action done by any user within Spanning. Drill down into any backup or restore for details, including error reporting and guidance.

Point-in-time restore
Restore data and metadata from any point-in-time backup. It all goes directly back into your Salesforce environment the way it was, quickly and accurately.
Granular restore
Recover specific fields of a record, or entire records that were updated or deleted. Restore related child records, or overwrite field values during restore — you choose, then restore just what you need.
Metadata restore
Recover metadata into the same org or cross-org for 17 different metadata types, including Objects, Reports, Dashboards, Emails, Layouts, Triggers, Workflows, Classes, Pages and more, directly from Spanning and within Salesforce — without using other tools.
Cross-org restore
Easily restore data and metadata from one organization into another, with an option to anonymize specific fields during restores.
Sandbox Seeding
Quickly seed sandboxes with the option to anonymize specific fields.
Close Salesforce integration
Lightning certified and built directly into the Salesforce interface, Spanning makes recovery a seamless, intuitive part of the Salesforce experience.
End user self-restore
Save Admins time by empowering your Salesforce end users with on-page restores. They can quickly restore those fields of records they have edit rights to, directly from the record pages.
