User Management Improvements
In preparation for Salesforce.com AppExchange Security Review, Match My Email releases improvements in role and user management.
Tarrytown, New York, March 8, 2011. Match My Email upgraded its cloud service over the weekend to Release 1.1.0. Match My Email implemented a new role and user management architecture in preparation for the Security Review required by Salesforce.com (No Software) of all applicants to its AppExchange.
Previously, Match My Email provided three levels of user management: Global, Domain and User. Now, it offers five user roles: Developer, Global Administrator, Account Owner, Domain Administrator or Team Lead and Individual User. Most importantly, the Developer and Global roles, which pertain to the Match My Email cloud administrators, cannot see any user email content or security information like passwords, security tokens, subject line, content of the email body or attachment data, just metadata related to usernames, entitlements, usage and login or credential failures.
|Developer||Access to object and source code, but no user content or security credentials|
|Global Administrator||Access to Usernames, entitlements, usage data and credential failure, but no user content or security credentials|
|Account Owner||Sets up domains and their administrators, access to all user-generated content related to the account but not individual user passwords or credentials|
|Domain Administrator or Team Lead||Set ups users and their folder imports; access to user content related to domain or team, but not to individual user passwords or credentials|
|Individual User||Sets up import folders, access to individual passwords and credentials; access to user specific content|
The enhancements were made in order to comply with Salesforce.com the security guidelines and support Match My Email’s application to AppExchange. Version 1.1.0 was completed in 7 weeks. It also includes improvements related to the user interface, a self-service 30-day trial wizard, and beta versions of some the Chatter RSS integration features planned for the next two or three releases.
Match My Email is the only true “No Software” email integration application available for Salesforce.com. It replaces the current Outlook plug-in for email logging and provides Entourage email synchronization via an Exchange server. Match My Email works with any IMAP email server and SFDC Enterprise and Unlimited versions out-of-the-box; Professional version users need to obtain API enablement from Salesforce.com.
At Cloudforce New York last week, Match My Email was given the opportunity to demonstrate its email integration application to Salesforce.com Sales Engineers, customers and prospects. The MME cloud service was very well received. Though many participants were skeptical at the beginning of the demo, by the end, virtually every participant was enthusiastic about the service and recognized its value and utility.
