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 Public Monitoring allows real-time GitHub scanning and alerting to uncover sensitive company information hiding in online repositories. It monitors both organization repositories and developers' personal repositories. The solution gives visibility to developers and security teams on this very critical blindspot that are the organization developers' personal repositories on GitHub (80% of leaked corporate secrets on public GitHub come from developers’ personal repositories).
GitGuardian Public Monitoring is particularly interesting for companies with large development teams (above 200 developers) and modern development practices.
GitGuardian Public Monitoring cover 250+ API providers, database connection strings, private keys, certificates, usernames and passwords and intellectual property. It uses sophisticated pattern matching techniques to detect credentials that cannot be strictly defined with a distinctive pattern (like unprefixed credentials). The algorithm has a high precision (91% “true positive” feedback following our alerts, as reported by our users.)
The alerting is done in real-time (a few seconds after the secret was publicly exposed) which allows fast remediation involving in a collaborative way developers, security teams and operations.
GitGuardian Public Monitoring also allows red teams and pentesters to proactively look for sensitive information by performing complex queries on 12 billion documents and metadata from more than 3 years of GitHub history.
