Moving to the cloud provides great opportunities - and risks. Starwood Capital invests in a solution that helps with cloud data security.

The challenge

Data security both during and after the cloud migration was a priority. Simultaneously, the company sought to make Salesforce’s entry-log data more accessible, less cryptic, and more actionable. After an exhaustive search, FairWarning emerged as the only vendor that met all the Starwood team’s needs and expectation.

Starwood Capital Group is a global private investment firm managing more than $52 billion in assets. Recently, Starwood made the decision to move from a network drive, shared company-wide, to the cloud. The move would cut costs, enhance usability, and enable the use of advanced business intelligence platforms. The move would also entail exporting vast quantities of highly sensitive data to Salesforce.

Keeping data secure both during and after the cloud migration was a priority. Simultaneously, the company sought to make Salesforce’s entry-log data more accessible, less cryptic, and more actionable. After an exhaustive search, FairWarning emerged as the only vendor that met all the Starwood team’s needs and expectations.

Things that were never possible before with Salesforce have become not only possible with FairWarning, but with essentially the same ease-of-use as Salesforce reporting.

Now, Starwood enjoys a double layer of data protection through the combination of Salesforce and FairWarning. Alerting and reporting are easier than ever. And FairWarning has empowered Starwoood to precisely monitor how and when data is accessed, and by whom.
