How does Heroku Connect Secure My Data in Transit?


You want to know what security measures are taken by Heroku Connect as it copies data from your Salesforce Organization to a Heroku Postgres database.


Heroku Connect uses TLS encryption while data is in motion both by using HTTPS to your Salesforce org and using TLS while communicating with your Heroku Postgres database. Heroku Connect keeps the unencrypted Salesforce data in memory while transferring the data to/from your Heroku Postgres database.
