Security that empowers developers
GitHub Advanced Security provides industry-leading capabilities natively in the developer environment. These capabilities include:
Find and fix security issues in your code before they reach production with static application security testing (SAST).
Prevent unauthorized access and breaches by watching your repositories for known secret formats, and get notified as soon as secrets are found.
Supply chain security
Catch vulnerable dependencies before you introduce them to your code base with software composition analysis (SCA).
Find and fix security issues earlier
Code scanning examines your code for security issues as it’s being written, and integrates fixes natively into the developer workflow.
Discover and manage hard-coded secrets
Secret scanning watches your repositories for known and custom secret formats, then notifies you as soon as secrets are found.

Supply chain security with real-time intelligence
Dependency review helps your reviewers and contributors understand dependency changes and their security impact—including which dependencies were added, removed, or updated.
