It is best suited for integrated security testing of applications which are hosted on web servers. The most important thing is the integration of DevSecOps which is crucial in today's fast paced environment of rapid development. The core of Acunetix is application scanning which is really great and I highly recommend this product to everyone

I do think it'll absolutely fit everyone who codes integrates with another platform or services. We all forget that one credentials one in a while, and especially those who managed public repository, it is important to keep an eye on accidentally committed credentials. While I think you don't really needs it for personal project, it's a nice to have, you don't want to waie up to 50k USD of sudden surcharge on resources you don't use.
Read full review Pros Fast. Easy-to-use. Great customer support. Reporting features. Supports importing state files from other popular application testing tools. Has other features built-in beyond just scanning for vulnerabilities. Read full review Secret scanning for secrets like Github OAuth Secrets Git commit/push hooks, so there's a check before you even try to push to a VCS Automatic rollback on accidentally pushed secerts Awesome dashboard and amazing options to resolve any false-positives Read full review Cons Configuration of DevSecOps can be improved for ease Dashboard can have API integration Broaden the scope of vulnerabilities Read full review Improved user interface: It would be beneficial to have a more intuitive and user-friendly interface for Internal Monitoring on GitGuardian. This would make it easier for users to quickly access the data they need and understand the results of their scans. Automated alerts: It would be helpful to have automated alerts when certain conditions are met, such as when a scan reveals sensitive data or when a new repository is created. This would help users stay informed and take action in a timely manner. More detailed reports: Currently, Internal Monitoring reports are limited in terms of the depth of information they provide. It would be useful to have more detailed reports that include additional metrics, such as the number of repositories scanned and the types of sensitive data found. Faster scan times: Scan times can be slow at times, making it difficult to stay on top of changes in repositories quickly. It would be beneficial to have faster scan times so that users can take action quickly when needed. Read full review Alternatives Considered
ZAP is a free tool, and adequate. But it is to that extent less friendly. I would not be as confident of the results and it definitely can't produce reports on par with Acunetix. There would be a lot of legwork on our end if we desired to switch to this tool.

We selected GitGuardian because I attended a webinar from them. And they explained excellent which security issues can be in secrets in public/private repositories and to mitigate this risks we decided to use GitGuardian. Also, the free tier is one of the things which are really great and good starting point into repository security. And it does what they promise, really good.
Read full review Return on Investment Saved money compared to other commercial scanners, especially over the long run. Scan speed seems to be pretty good compared to some of the bulkier commercial products out there. However, that largely has to do with proper configuration. A downside is that is requires a bit of extra work just to get it set up to scan APIs, web services, etc. Read full review GitGuardian Internal Monitoring has had a positive impact on our overall business objectives.
