Public Monitoring


repositories monitoring

Monitor the official repositories listed under your GitHub organization. These are the repositories your company knows exist.

Developers’ personal repositories monitoring

Monitor developers’ personal public repositories. This is where 80% of corporate credentials are leaked on the platform. We identify this shadow activity by automatically linking your developers, repositories and source code to your company.


Broad coverage

We cover 350+ API providers, database connection strings, private keys, certificates, usernames and passwords, intellectual property, …

Keyword match

Ability to define your own keywords to look for internal project names, reserved IP addresses range, domain name, ...

Sophisticated detection
that goes beyond keyword match

We use sophisticated pattern matching techniques to detect credentials that cannot be strictly defined with a distinctive pattern (like unprefixed credentials).

High precision

91% “true positive” feedback following our alerts, as reported by our users.


Real-time alerting

Our Mean Time To Detect is a few seconds after the secret was publicly exposed.

Developer alerting

Developers are at the forefront of the issue. We alert developers alongside the security team (Application Security / Threat Response).


Integrate with your
remediation workflow

We’re integrated with most common SIEM, ITSM, ticketing systems, chats, …

Collaborate with developers

Collect developer feedback directly in the dashboard, in order to better investigate and prioritize.


Advanced logging capabilities

Ask for proof points! We provide a detailed list of every monitored developer and repository, as well as logs of every single commit that was analyzed, and reproducible results of our scans.

In the vast majority of the cases, these leaks are unintentional, not malevolent. With 40M+ developers using GitHub, any company with a lot of developers is exposed to the platform.
