Introducing Veeam Backup for Salesforce v2

Veeam Backup for Salesforce is the fastest growing product in Veeam history. This growth is attributed not only to its ease of use but also to the increasing understanding among our customers’ thought process behind data backup. It’s no longer a question of if you will lose your data, but when.

Let’s take a look at the newest key features and enhancements available in Veeam Backup for Salesforce v2.

Salesforce Security and Compliance

Keep your inner circle small with single sign-on (SSO) authentication for console users, which allows product administrators to provide users with easy access to the console as well as grant them appropriate roles for their scope of operations. Administrators also have the option to limit single sign-on to a specific Salesforce domain. Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is supported if the option is enabled for an organization. To further address compliance needs we have enabled an audit policy with configurable retention that will record all operator logins and operations.

Sandbox Seeding

Our most requested addition, sandbox seeding allows the loading of data or replicating production data to a sandbox for troubleshooting or development purposes. Our new restore wizard allows you to specify the source and the target Salesforce Org, with the option to seed data to a new sandbox in only a few clicks, what could be better?

Salesforce Government Cloud

Maintaining compliancy is mandatory for U.S. federal, state, and local government customers, as well as U.S. government contractors. Salesforce Government Cloud is a instance of Salesforce specifically for use by these agencies. Veeam Backup for Salesforce v2 is interoperable with Salesforce Government Cloud, so customers can deploy Veeam Backup for Salesforce in a secured, compliant environment, and use new custom domain configuration in backup policies.

Salesforce Business Apps

V2 now protects data and metadata for native applications like Salesforce Field Service, Person Account, CPQ, Education Cloud Architecture (EDA) or any unlocked packages, as well as user-generated data and custom metadata from managed packages on the Salesforce platform.


We have refined our backup engine so that backup performance is measurably increased and as a result,  users will enjoy reduced API consumption overall. Those improvements make Veeam even more capable of backup for all organizations and especially those with billions of records. File backups and restores have been extended to additional content types such as FeedAttachment, ContentNote, and ServiceReport, and backup schedules now include time zones.


It is now available during restores to set alternate keys for objects to avoid running into duplication errors. Large file restores are available for files up to 2GB, and data filter validations in restore wizards have been improved when you need to specify several picklist values or have specific Salesforce ID’s to filter.
