GitGuardian is a French and American scale-up that builds the code security platform for the DevOps generation.

More specifically, GitGuardian provides two solutions enabling Dev, Sec, and Ops to advance together towards the Secure Software Development Lifecycle.

The first solution is the GitGuardian platform offering Secrets detection and remediation, Infra as Code Security, an Honeytoken capabilities.

Secrets detection and remediation consists of detecting secrets in developers’ source code (API keys, identification secrets, passwords, etc). It warns developers and their company’s security teams when company’s secrets are exposed on internal repositories.

Infra as Code Security helps protect the cloud infrastructure from security misconfigurations.

Honeytoken aims at detecting intrusions in the software supply chain by alerting when intruders are trying to access confidential data by penetrating systems through software supply chain components.

The second product is Public Monitoring. It scans all public GitHub repositories in real-time and alerts developers and their company’s security teams when secrets are unintentionally leaked on developers’ personal GitHub repositories.

To put it another way, GitGuardian is the “Guardian” of Code by helping to build a complete code security platform.

  • Values
  • Benefits

Everyone is a teacher!

At GitGuardian we develop solutions that are: innovative, technical and disruptive to the market. This is possible thanks to the most valuable asset we have, our team.

We promote a culture of altruism and support so everyone has opportunities to both learn and share skills in an encouraging environment. We must always feed our curiosity and knowledge but, importantly, we must also document it for future generations of Guardians.

Dare and go the extra mile!

We dare to be ambitious and Guardians are committed to this ambition. We are all hands-on and proactive people, going the extra mile and thinking out of the box. GitGuardian successes are all Guardians' successes. Being operational, committed, and proactive are keys to success at GitGuardian. We always reward the things that make us grow!

Innovate, step by step

The very technical industry in which we operate requires us to be analytical, precise, detailed, and to innovate with an iterative approach. Guardians are far-reaching and love a job well done. We hypothesize, analyze, measure our results (#datalover) and evolve our work and our approach to the challenges we face.

Fail smart, grow fast

We have the ambition to grow fast and we know that doing so involves failing regularly. Making mistakes and failing is a sign of innovation and self-growth which are actively encouraged. But mistakes and failures are destructive if we learn nothing from them, we promote all Guardians to fail smart: take ownership, learn, be pragmatic and propose evaluated solutions.

Team up, stay humble

As we grow up, it is easy to lose sight of what defines us. We are aware of our shortcomings, and in order to progress in a positive environment, we expect everyone to remain humble, to continue to learn from their peers, and to remember that we do not succeed alone but as a team!
