SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12, 2023Nightfall AI, the leader in cloud Data Leak Prevention (cloud DLP), today announced a partnership with Snyk, a leading developer security provider, to offer developers AI-powered secrets-scanning capabilities. Snyk and Nightfall are partnering to co-sell Nightfall's DLP platform alongside Snyk's Developer Security Platform.

Secrets such as passwords, API keys, tokens, and database credentials are used by applications to validate users' identities, ensure secure communications, and provide access to privileged information. Due to their many uses, secrets are often shared and proliferated across collaborative apps like GitHub and Slack. In fact, according to Nightfall's latest "State of Secrets" report, more than five active keys are leaked in the cloud per every 100 employees—per month. Threat actors can leverage these sprawled secrets in the cloud to get ahold of sensitive company data. Given the prevalent risk of leaked secrets and the costly nature of security breaches, Snyk tapped Nightfall to ensure that DevOps and security teams have all the tools they need to strengthen their software supply chains.

"The code-to-cloud lifecycle presents several unique security challenges, especially around the area of leaked secrets. Legacy secret scanning solutions are riddled with false positives, and focus solely on code repositories instead of the broader aperture of tools that developers use on a daily basis," said Manoj Nair, Chief Product Officer of Snyk. "By partnering with Nightfall AI, we can now bring best-of-breed, AI-powered secrets scanning to Snyk customers and continue to deliver the most comprehensive developer security offering to the market."

As an AI-native cloud DLP solution with advanced secrets detection, Nightfall will amplify Snyk's security for developers across key SaaS apps and GenAI tools, including GitHub, Slack, and Jira. In addition to helping developers identify potential security threats earlier and more efficiently, this partnership will also help with remediating leaked secrets via Nightfall's advanced developer-centric remediation capabilities.

"Nightfall AI's partnership with Snyk provides a comprehensive solution for some of the most pervasive threats that developers and SecOps teams face in the cloud—including, most notably, leaked secrets and credentials," said Isaac Madan, Co-Founder and CEO of Nightfall. "We are thrilled to deliver joint secret scanning and code scanning capabilities to help developers stay secure as they innovate."

Together, Snyk and Nightfall have streamlined this vital component of software security. Snyk customers can leverage Nightfall's capabilities immediately beginning today, October 12th.
