SAN MATEO, CA: GitHub has resorted to Sookasa to enhance the security aspect and tackle the increasing code theft and malicious code issues. Sookasa, a cloud security company provides Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solutions to detect security breach, encrypt data and enforce security protocols.

In light of the new partnership with GitHub, Sookasa has released GitHub Audit a tool which helps administrators to evaluate and alleviate security risks on the GitHub platform. Millions of users are depending on the GitHub platform to discover, develop and contribute to numerous projects.

“We’re delighted to present our integration with GitHub,” said Asaf Cidon, CEO and Co-Founder of Sookasa. “Enterprises in the tech industry and beyond are increasingly viewing their source code as one of their most prized forms of intellectual property. And no wonder, companies have to protect themselves and the backbones of their businesses against the growing risks of rogue employees stealing information or hackers injecting malicious code.”

The GitHub Audit provides a simplified SaaS security by providing a complete set of security tools to the administrators to detect potential risks to their source code. While the software provides transparency on who has access to the repository by enforcing two-factor authentication, it also allows companies to create a single console consisting of all the security tools.

“It’s clear that GitHub is the preferred solution among developers, and our Audit product gives administrators the peace of mind they need to incorporate GitHub into their development environments,” says Cidon.
