Enterprises leverage Opsera’s no-code pipelines and built-in security ports to identify sensitive data and prevent it from leaking into production
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Opsera, the Continuous Orchestration platform for DevOps, today announced the availability of Opsera GitCustodian. This new solution scans vulnerable data in source code repositories (ie Git) and alerts security and DevOps teams so they can prevent vulnerabilities from leaking into production. Once vulnerabilities are found, GitCustodian automates the recovery process for any uncovered secrets or other sensitive artifacts.

“Vulnerabilities in the source code can cost organizations hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars a year as a result of cyber-attack breaches. This is where Opsera GitCustodian comes in handy,” said Opsera GitCustodian. Gilbert Martin, VP Customer Success and Solutions at Opsera. “It scans and alerts security teams to vulnerable secrets lurking in source code repositories before it’s too late. These teams are now able to proactively enforce best practices for the secure software development lifecycle through orchestrated secret management, eliminating vulnerabilities. in the source code are a thing of the past.”
The “as-a-Service” (i.e. Platform-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service, etc.) trend is growing, and with it comes a move towards “everything as code.” As the code scales, so do the complexities, especially when it comes to security. Many Git users unknowingly store sensitive data (ie, secrets, passwords, certificates, keys, etc.) in source code repositories – if this data is pushed to production, they risk being exposed to cyberattacks. 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 that sensitive data is not stored or leaked to production. Teams receive a centralized snapshot of vulnerable secrets and other sensitive artifacts at risk in version control systems in minutes.
“Stealing credentials and secrets from source code and configuration files is a common technique that attackers have used in many breaches,” he says. Neil Daswanic, co-author of Big Breachs: Cybersecurity Lessons For Everyone. “GitCustodian can help identify and mitigate such risks in your codebase as part of automatically generated and operationalized CI/CD pipelines, which is one of Opsera’s key strengths.”
The main features and benefits of Opsera GitCustodian are:
- Highly Accurate, Comprehensive Secret Detection: Discover a wide variety of secrets and other sensitive data in source code with detectors based on multiple algorithms and industry standard profiles.
- Scan existing source code sources: Get a centralized snapshot of vulnerable secrets and other sensitive artifacts at risk in version control systems in minutes.
- Add Proactive Secrets Governance to Existing CI/CD Workflows: Go from detection to remediation to authentication with integrated alerts and trouble tickets for complete incident lifecycle management. Add discovery and management ports to the software development pipeline to discover secrets and other sensitive artifacts before they are released.
- Keep secrets and keys safe: A built-in vault eliminates the friction of following secret management best practices.
- Enable collaboration: Notify affected teams to take immediate action without changing how or where they work with flexible alerts via email, Slack, Microsoft Teams, Jira, and ServiceNow integrations.
- Full insights and analytics: Get a complete picture of health and security across the entire lifecycle with actionable insights and compliance reporting.
Industry analysts also recognize the complexity of source code management and companies’ need for tools to mitigate risk. “The complexity of modern applications poses multiple challenges in terms of managing dependencies and configuration information, security tokens, username/passwords, and other secrets,” said Jon Collins, VP of Research and Principal Analyst at GigaOM. “It’s too much to expect developers to keep an eye on all potential issues, such as accidentally missing a .gitignore file and publishing confidential information in Git. In addition to CI/CD automation, companies also need tools that can proactively scan software code and dependencies, and also prevent accidental leakage of sensitive data.”
