Opsera GitCustodian proactively secures software development pipelines to protect sensitive data found in source code

Enterprises leverage Opsera’s no-code pipelines and built-in security barriers to identify and prevent leaks of sensitive data in production

SAN FRANCISCO, August 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Opsera, the continuous orchestration platform for DevOps, today announced the availability of Opsera GitCustodian. This new solution scans vulnerable data found in source code repositories (i.e. Git) and alerts security and DevOps teams so they can prevent vulnerabilities from entering production. Once vulnerabilities are detected, GitCustodian automates the remediation process for any discovered secrets or other sensitive artifacts.

“Source code vulnerabilities can cost organizations hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars per year due to breaches by cyberattackers. This is where Opsera GitCustodian comes in,” said Gilbert Martin, vice president of customer success and solutions at Opsera. “It scans and alerts security teams to vulnerable secrets hidden in source code repositories before it’s too late. These teams are now empowered to proactively apply secure software development lifecycle best practices through to orchestrated governance of secrets, making source code vulnerabilities a thing of the past.”

The “as-a-Service” (i.e. everything as code) trend. However, as code evolves, so do the complexities with it, especially in security. sensitive data (i.e. secrets, passwords, certificates, keys, etc.) in source code repositories. If this data is put into production, it may be exposed to To protect this data, Opsera’s GitCustodian provides proactive visibility into source code vulnerabilities and helps security and DevOps teams address them early in the continuous delivery/continuous integration (CI/CD) process to ensure sensitive data is not stored or leaked in production Teams receive a centralized snapshot of all vulnerable secrets and other sensitive artifacts at risk in version control systems within minutes.

“Stealing credentials and secrets from source code and configuration files is a common technique that attackers have used in numerous breaches,” said Neil Daswani, co-author of Big Breaches: Cybersecurity Lessons For Everyone. “GitCustodian can help identify and mitigate these risks in your codebase as part of auto-generated and operationalized CI/CD pipelines, which is one of Opsera’s core strengths.”

Key features and benefits of Opsera GitCustodian include:

  • Highly accurate and comprehensive secret detection: Discover a wide range of secrets and other sensitive data in source code with detectors based on multiple industry standard algorithms and profiles.
  • Analyze existing source code repositories: Get a centralized snapshot in minutes of all vulnerable secrets and other risk-sensitive artifacts in version control systems.
  • Add proactive secrets governance to existing CI/CD workflows: Move from detection to resolution to verification with built-in alerts and trouble tickets for complete incident lifecycle management. Add detection and governance gates to the software development pipeline to capture secrets and other sensitive artifacts before they are released.
  • Safely store secrets and keys: An integrated vault eliminates the friction of following secret management best practices.
  • Enabling collaboration: Notify relevant teams to take immediate action without changing how they work or where they work with flexible alerts via email, Slack, Microsoft Teams, Jira, and ServiceNow integrations.
  • Comprehensive information and analysis: Get a complete picture of health and safety across the entire lifecycle with actionable insights and compliance reports.

Industry analysts also recognize the complexity of source code management and companies’ need for tools to help reduce risk. “The complexity of modern applications brings multiple challenges around managing dependencies and configuration information, security tokens, usernames/passwords, and other secrets,” said Jon Collins, VP of Research and Principal Analyst at GigaOM. “It’s too much to expect developers to stay on top of any potential issues, like inadvertently missing a .gitignore file and posting confidential information to Git. In addition to CI/CD automation, companies should also adopt tools that can proactively analyze software code and dependencies, and also prevent the accidental leak of sensitive data.”
