Discover how the GitGuardian Platform stacks up against Blubracket's secret scanning capabilities.
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 is the code security platform for the DevOps generation that offers automated Secrets Detection, Infra as Code Security, and Honeytoken capabilities, facilitating a Secure Software Development Lifecycle for Dev, Sec, and Ops teams.
BluBracket (acquired by HashiCorp) is a security solution for code in a software-driven world. BluBracket gives companies visibility into where source code introduces security risk while enabling them to fully secure their code—without altering developer workflows or productivity.
++ You want an open, transparent platform that allows you to test and run the product easily. You want to sign up for free to experience the power of the platform for yourself.
++ You are looking for a reliable secrets detection engine supporting 350+ specific, generic, and custom patterns – providing high accuracy and recall.
++ You want to achieve effective incident lifecycle management with GitGuardian's detection engine, which includes secret validity checks, presence checks, contextual code analysis, automated severity assignment, and occurrence grouping for streamlined incident handling.
++ You need an enterprise-first platform that offers scalable and robust secrets detection and remediation, intuitive dashboards, enterprise features, and continuous support and customization.
++ The ability to support multiple Infrastructure-as-Code security policies across AWS, Azure, and GCP is a key priority.
-- No strong need for remediation workflow automation and support to bring dev and sec teams together.

While BluBracket is a great platform, GitGuardian offers superior detection capabilities, collaboration with developers, automated playbooks, and exceptional support, making it the better option for big enterprises.
GitGuardian offers a rich and centralized dashboard, facilitating collaboration between Dev, Sec, and Ops teams. Easily start scans, analyze results, filter incidents, assign tasks, and track progress with comprehensive analytics. Streamline your incident response with GitGuardian's user-friendly interface.
BluBracket's UI/UX falls short in incident management. The lack of search functionality and difficulty filtering high-risk incidents hinders effective prioritization and remediation workflows.
With over 350 types of secrets and high accuracy levels, GitGuardian shines in secrets detection. Our platform goes beyond BluBracket with advanced features like key validity checks and contextual code analysis. Our 14 sensitive file extensions and 22 sensitive file names enhance detection while excluding paths like test directories.
BluBracket falls short in comparison, offering fewer detectors and lacking sensitive filenames and file extensions detection. It lacks key validity checks, presence checks, and contextual code analysis. With no filepath exclusions and high false positives, BluBracket's detection capabilities are less comprehensive than GitGuardian's.
GitGuardian platform boasts specific detectors with a 91% true positive rate. Additionally, we streamline incident handling by grouping multiple occurrences of exposed secrets into one incident, simplifying remediation.
BluBracket lacks the differentiation between specific and generic detectors and offers fewer than 10 types of generic secret support. Without occurrence grouping, managing alerts becomes more challenging.
GitGuardian goes beyond basic incident data. We provide contextual tags, such as historical scans, exposure details, and automated severity scoring. Our platform offers a comprehensive timeline, keeping you informed with an extensive activity log.
BluBracket offers minimal incident data, limited to secret type, commit details, location, and author. Automated incident severity and a detailed timeline are not supported.
GitGuardian enables seamless collaboration with developers by providing a scoped view on the dashboard for easy incident access and remediation. Our platform offers a robust RBAC Teams Management system with fine-grained access control and available roles tailored to onboarded devs. You can manage teams effectively and enhance collaboration with GitGuardian.
BluBracket lacks developer collaboration features and does not offer RBAC capabilities.
GitGuardian offers powerful remediation playbooks that automate tasks such as sharing incidents with developers, collecting feedback, and closing incidents. You can simplify your remediation process with default remediation guidelines and the ability to create custom guidelines tailored to your company’s processes.
BluBracket offers limited Remediation Support as it lacks automated playbooks and default/custom remediation guidelines.
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.
