Allowing a third-party application access to your email and Salesforce is a serious thing. LinkPoint Connect is designed with security at the forefront. Before choosing an email integration solution, consider the level of access requested, configuration requirements, and deployment options to ensure that your data and email environment are not compromised.
LinkPoint Connect integrates with Salesforce directly through the Salesforce API. Information is transmitted, not stored, by the application. Customer content is not stored by LinkPoint Connect on any LinkPoint360 servers.
LinkPoint Connect does not require Salesforce Admin access or an Einstein subscription for set up. The application honors all Salesforce profiles and permissions, including Salesforce Shield encryption, to ensure end users only have access to Salesforce data through LinkPoint Connect mirroring their level of access in Salesforce itself. Installer packages support Salesforce MyDomain configuration out-of-the-box, eliminating end user configuration.
LinkPoint Connect does not require direct integration with Exchange (or EWS ) or require users to enter their Exchange passwords in the application. Since LinkPoint Connect resides within Outlook, companies avoid exposure of EWS URL endpoints that can compromise email clients. LinkPoint Connect does not require Microsoft AppSource Store downloads, allowing companies that restrict access to add-ons the ability to deploy without third-party website access.
