What is Heroku?

Heroku is a cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) system used by many developers to deploy, manage and scale their applications.

Hosted by AWS

All Heroku-based applications are hosted by Amazon Web Service (AWS) and are usually run through one or more buildpacks that provide framework and runtime support.

Collaborative Environment

Each collaborating team member can deploy and manage many applications, which is why it’s important to manage which team members can access your Heroku environment.

Secure Access to Heroku Depends on You

Security in the cloud is shared between Heroku and the customer.


Your Heroku data is stored and executed in a collection of systems operated by Heroku’s team. Salesforce architects these systems and performs audits to verify the security of systems and processes.


Heroku customers are responsible for managing access to their account and resources. That means customers must provide their own security through authentication and user access control in order to protect their Heroku environment.
