Chechmarx is really suited for finding wide range of security risks. It although identifies false positives which can be confusing at times. It can do better in terms of scan duration. They are better alternate competitors in the market who can do equally good or even better. It all depends on the scope of the problem you want to address

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 Reporting Language support Fix recommendations 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 Lots of false positives Hard to integrate with CI 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
We actually use Checkmarx along with the other tools. However, the reason we chose Checkmarx is its wide support for languages and useful fix recommendations. The flowcharts help better understand the data flow and give a clear picture of what needs to be fixed and how. Also, developers can make a note of what should be avoided in the future. Overall, it's a great tool and would be a good investment to make.

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.
