Check out how the GitGuardian Platform compares to the secret scanning capabilities of Cycode.
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.
Cycode is a software supply chain security solution that provides visibility, security, and integrity across all phases of the SDLC.
++ You want an open and transparent platform that allows you to test and run the product with ease. 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 need a detection engine that performs secret validity checks and contextual code analysis to filter out false positives.
++ You need an enterprise-first platform that offers scalable and robust secrets detection and remediation, as well as enterprise features and continuous support and customization.
++ You're looking for a platform with a wider range of capabilities and prioritize breadth over depth.
++ 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 Cycode 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's detection capabilities outshine those of Cycode in several ways. GitGuardian supports over 350 types of secrets with high accuracy levels compared to Cycode's fewer detectors.
GitGuardian also has the ability to check the validity of keys before raising an alert, which Cycode does not offer. We have 14 sensitive file extensions and 22 sensitive file names that raise policy break alerts, further improving the platform's detection capabilities. Additionally, the engine performs a contextual code analysis to filter out false positives.
Say goodbye to alert fatigue with GitGuardian! The platform's specific detectors have an impressive 91% true positive rate, while generic detectors offer around 80% true positives. GitGuardian also regroups multiple occurrences of secrets exposed across files and repositories into a single incident, simplifying the remediation process.
Collaborating with developers is made easy with GitGuardian, as they can access incidents through a scoped view on the dashboard or a generated external link. This allows for quick and easy incident remediation and feedback.Cycode requires developers to be onboarded onto the platform, as it does not provide any public links for incident access.
GitGuardian's remediation playbooks are a powerful feature that can make life easier for Dev, Sec, and Ops teams. Playbooks like sharing incidents with involved developers, collecting feedback, and closing incidents when they are re-checked as invalid can be automated, saving teams valuable time and resources. With default remediation guidelines and the ability to create custom guidelines, teams can tailor their workflows to meet their specific needs.
Cycode doesn't provide feedback collection or default and custom remediation guidelines, making it challenging to manage remediation efforts.
GitGuardian is committed to providing exceptional support to its customers throughout the rollout phase. The platform offers comprehensive onboarding packages free of charge, which may extend for several months if needed.
Our customer success team will be with you every step of the way, from setting up check-ins to walking you through the platform's setup. DevRel lunch and learn sessions are also available to ensure that every member of your team is comfortable and confident in 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.
