GitGuardian Launches New Software Supply Chain Security Software, Honeytoken
GitGuardian launched its new Honeytoken module, providing intrusion detection, code leakage detection and helping companies secure their software supply chains against attackers targeting Source Control Management (SCM) systems, Continuous Integration Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines, and software artifact registries. With attackers increasingly targeting components in the software supply chain as entry points, GitGuardian’s Honeytoken offers a proactive and pragmatic approach to detect and limit the impact of data breaches. Honeytokens look like real credentials, but don’t grant access to actual customer data, instead only triggering alerts that report the intruder’s IP address.

EASM: What AppSec and ProdSec Teams Need to Know
AppSec and ProdSec teams have historically dealt with this in various ways. DevSecOps, for example, is a popular solution – many organizations feel that the best way to defend their vulnerable assets is to bring security into the development process early on (so-called ‘Shifting Left’), theoretically catching vulnerabilities before they make it into production. The trouble here is that not every vulnerability that makes it into production is present in staging or development. Additionally, application security is not static – a software component may have been considered secure at the time of development, but that may simply have been because the vulnerability hadn’t yet been discovered. No matter how much your organization prioritizes Shifting Left, you won’t catch everything, and you’ll need a plan to prioritize and address the vulnerabilities you miss.
