Pros
First of all a really great UI. Very simple and beautiful dashboard.
Easy to set up-The remediation workflow helps to quickly resolve findings and makes it easy to include developers in the process.
It has been great I trust it and the securities of my repos.
Cons
No support for integrating with ADO, which is frustrating because we've had to purchase another tool for this.
I have pushed almost for 7-8 times. Now days i do that mistake rarely but in earlier days I was struggle with this issue.
The UI is a little tricky to navigate because there's so much information presented. For example, it's hard for me to figure out how to exclude certain repos from their scans.

Keep your codes and software safe with GitGuardian

Reviewed a year ago

Software that monitors my code for security purposes!! What more as a developer would i need than some software which can alert me in case of any security issues with my code!

Pros

First of all a really great UI. Very simple and beautiful dashboard.The emails which keep me notified in case of any confidential credentials i may leak in my codes keep my codes and software safe and also help me realize where the leak is.

Cons

I haven't really found any negative sides while using GitGuardian, it has really been a useful software and can't complain about it.

Fit to purpose to our needs / Very little I need to admin

Reviewed 2 years ago

GitGuardian is now actively included in our core CI/CD pipeline. Setup was very easy and, and the time I need now to admin it is close to zero. After the initial adoption, "avoiding secrets in first instance" is now part of our standard practice. I would say GitGuardian is now our insurance that secrets are not disclosed inadvertently.

Pros

Easy to install. I mean, very easy! I have followed the "Quick-Start" guide, it took me about 30 mins. and when I read "Start Remediating" I thought it was the time to figure out how to adapt to our own environment and I have spent a couple of hours to set-up a manual/parallel integration that was totally unnecessary. I like the remediation flow: no emails back and forth, it simplifies the communication and the resolution of incidents across users. I can easily narrow the scope to what is critical to us, this has reduced the remediation effort to specific and relevant incidents. Automatic notifications: as an admin, I do not need to investigate every and each incident. GitHub Integration: secrets within code are automaticall detected and merge is blocked.

Cons

So many ways to integrate, it might be a plus for others, it was confusing to me. in my case I was not clear if I needed a "VCS/GitHub" or "CI/CD GitHub Actions" integration. Pricing plan for small business is not fully clear and requires to "contact sales".

Gitguardian prevented a major leak in my codebase

Reviewed a month ago

as i said, gitgauardian helped detect a leak in my codebase and emailed to notify me about it, else i would have found it pretty late.

Pros

It detected the leak pretty quick and gave me some steps which put me mentally at ease that my data was safe.

Cons

I think they can make there UI a little more user friendly as it is sometimes a little hard to navigate what leaks it detected and where its telling me to fix it, especially while im panicking.

Easy to use for GitHub, not so easy for ADO.

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Very easy to setup, simply a few clicks and you're done. Quickly alerts in near real time.

Cons

No support for integrating with ADO, which is frustrating because we've had to purchase another tool for this.

GitGuardian integrates in a snap!

Reviewed 3 years ago

We are using GitGuardian to prevent secrets from leaking into repositories both public and private. So far our experience has been excellent. We actually leaked a private SSH key and got a notification from GitGuardian almost immediately. We were able to revoke the key and remediate the blunder.

Pros

Integration was a snap. We're already using pre-commit for most of our repos so hooking GitGuardian into the process was simple. Since we also already use GitHub, we found integration to be extremely easy.

Cons

We had no issues integrating GitGuardian and have not found any cons, yet.

Vendor response

Thank you for sharing your experience Torgny! It's great to see teams lay great store by Shift Left and use GitGuardian at the pre-commit level.
