Outlining the features in Heroku Enterprise during the announcement of the availability of the tool in App Cloud, Goldfarb said Heroku Enterprise comes with a feature called Private Spaces. With the Private Spaces feature, Goldfarb added that Heroku Enterprise is better equipped to connect to virtual private networks, offer global regional support and provide more effective identity management.
As for the matter of identity management, Salesforce.com, Inc. (NYSE:CRM) has built capabilities in Heroku Enterprise that allow the tool to both connect to its own identity system as well as third-party systems such as Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Active Directory.
Data sovereignty issue
With Heroku Enterprise, Salesforce.com, Inc. (NYSE:CRM) has also taken care of data sovereignty issue, especially saying that Global Regions in the tool addresses data residency matters that customers might have when using the tool.
