It’s time for our yearly wrap-up as we bid adieu to 2022! Last year has shown us that we’re still the developers’ best ally to catch hardcoded secrets, the GitGuardian app remains #1 on GitHub Marketplace, and we don’t want to stop here!
We entered 2022 with more than 300 built-in detectors in GitGuardian. And while it may seem like it’s enough, it has not changed our quest to provide the most all-around secrets detection engine and help security and engineering teams write more secure code.
Let’s take a quick look at the 30+ new detectors our engineering team released this year.
New detectors released in 2022
The 1st quarter of the year was the busiest, with 14 new detectors released!
The 2nd quarter was the least busy; our team shipped fewer detectors. Still, it focused on improving the precision and accuracy of the existing ones!
Finally, things picked up in the second half of 2022, with more than 15 detectors released!
In your GitGuardian workspace
Remember, you can view and activate or deactivate secrets detectors from your GitGuardian workspace. Also, each detector now links to a specific page in the GitGuardian documentation to which you can refer for more detailed information on the type of secret, its scope, how to revoke it, etc.
