Amazon Macie is a security service that uses machine learning to automatically discover, classify, and protect sensitive data in AWS. Amazon Macie recognizes sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII) or intellectual property, and provides you with dashboards and alerts that give visibility into how this data is being accessed or moved. The fully managed service continuously monitors data access activity for anomalies, and generates detailed alerts when it detects risk of unauthorized access or inadvertent data leaks. Amazon Macie is available to protect data stored in Amazon S3.
GitGuardian Internal Monitoring is an automated secret detection & remediation solution. It integrates with the Version Control System to further secure the software development life cycle. It scans existing code as well as incremental changes to detect secrets (API keys, database credentials, certificates).
Scanning is done continuously but also on git history to ensure total coverage. The secret detection engine covers 250+ API providers, database connection strings, private keys, certificates, usernames and passwords and allows also to build custom detectors.
GitGuardian uses sophisticated pattern matching techniques to detect credentials that cannot be strictly defined with a distinctive pattern (like unprefixed credentials). The precision of the detection engine is very high as it returns 91% “true positive” feedback following our alerts, as reported by our users. The developer and the application security team get the alert and can start the remediation process immediately.
GitGuardian has a native integration with GitHub, GitLab and Bitbucket and there is both a Saas and an on-premise version available. It is also integrated with most common SIEM, ITSM, ticketing systems and chat to integrate with companies’ alerting flows.
