Otta's take on GitGuardian

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

The twin uptakes of GitHub usage and cloud architectures have resulted in the propagation of digital authentication credentials in both public and private code repositories. Think APIs, cryptographic keys and login credentials.

GitGuardian has become 100,000s of developersโ€™ wingman in identifying these secrets in real time, securing enterprise software with bottom-up adoption.

The startup has also built from its secret detection expertise and extended its technology to encode a wide variety of vulnerabilities to compete with legacy code security platforms. In 2021, GitGuardian raised an impressive $44 million in order to accelerate this innovation.

So far, GitGuardianโ€™s laser-sharp focus on secret detection has allowed it to carve out a lucrative niche, but the expansion of its technology will bring it into direct competition with well-established cyber security giants. The company is gathering momentum, however, and is likely to scale in line with its technology in the coming years.
