Check out how the GitGuardian Platform compares to the secret scanning capabilities of Apiiro.
Before we had GitGuardian we were "blind." We had no detections, which was very bad. We were using another product on GitHub, similar to GitGuardian, but it was not really as good as GitGuardian. The graphical interface and the detail GitGuardian gives you are really amazing. And there are fewer false positives than any other platform. We are able to notify developers of issues on the spot and tell them, "You have exposed a secret." It is absolutely brilliant.

GitGuardian excels with extensive detection capabilities, streamlined developer collaboration, remediation, and dedicated customer support, surpassing Apiiro in key areas.
GitGuardian surpasses Apiiro in terms of detection capabilities on multiple fronts. Unlike Apiiro, GitGuardian supports over 350 types of secrets and maintains high accuracy with its extensive detectors.
In addition, GitGuardian provides a unique feature of checking the presence of keys in Git history before triggering an alert, which sets it apart from Apiiro. With stronger entropy checks, 14 sensitive file extensions, and 22 sensitive file names that trigger policy break alerts, GitGuardian further enhances its detection capabilities. Moreover, GitGuardian's engine conducts contextual code analysis to filter out false positives effectively.
Our platform has highly accurate specific detectors with an impressive 91% true positive rate, ensuring you receive reliable alerts. Even our generic detectors offer around 80% true positives, surpassing the weak entropy checks provided by Apiiro. Our advanced algorithms actively search for patterns such as high entropy strings and contextual hints like 'username' and 'pwd' keywords, allowing us to identify potential secrets with greater precision.
But that's not all. GitGuardian goes the extra mile by consolidating multiple instances of exposed secrets across various files and repositories into a single incident. This streamlined approach simplifies the remediation process, saving you time and effort. Say goodbye to alert overload and deliver accurate and actionable alerts while effectively combating alert fatigue.
At GitGuardian, we prioritize seamless collaboration with developers, making incident management and feedback collection a breeze. Developers can easily access incidents through a scoped view on our intuitive dashboard. This streamlined approach enables quick incident remediation and valuable feedback.
Additionally, GitGuardian offers default remediation guidelines, along with the flexibility to create custom guidelines, empowering teams to tailor their workflows to their specific needs. While Apiiro may offer similar features, we have heard from prospects that their implementation can be buggy and challenging to manage remediation efforts effectively.
At GitGuardian, we prioritize your success and satisfaction during the rollout phase. That's why we offer extensive and complimentary onboarding packages tailored to your needs, even if it requires several months of support.
Our dedicated customer success team is committed to providing guidance and assistance throughout the entire onboarding process. From initial setup to regular check-ins, we'll be there to ensure a smooth transition. Additionally, our DevRel lunch and learn sessions are designed to empower your team with in-depth knowledge and expertise, ensuring everyone feels confident and comfortable using GitGuardian.
The solution has significantly reduced our mean time to remediation, by three or four months. We wouldn't know about it until we did our quarterly or semi-annual review for secrets and scan for secrets.
