See how Trufflehog v3, the open-source secrets scanning command-line interface (CLI), matches up against Nightfall’s Secrets and Keys scanning capabilities.
Nightfall is a data security and compliance platform that helps find and protect your most sensitive data (PII, PHI, Secrets and Keys, and more). It is the easiest-to-use and most accurate data leak prevention (DLP) platform for SaaS & cloud apps, all powered by AI.
TruffleHog is an open-source CLI that helps find hardcoded secrets in Git repositories.
Tackling secrets and keys leakage is a high priority and you want to scale secrets detection across your organization - Slack, Jira, and more, not just in Git repos.
You want a fully integrated platform with capabilities like alerting, incident prioritization and triage, content preview, automated remediation workflows, rich analytics, and developer platform access (allowing for integration with any cloud app). TruffleHog does not provide context around the exposed secret (including analytics or a GUI) to expedite incident response and remediation.
You are looking for enterprise-grade software and support that will scale with your business from tens of employees to tens of thousands.
You want the most accurate detection. Nightfall’s AI-based detection will ensure you spend less time managing false positives and you can validate whether an API is active, helping you manage your security program with fewer resources.
You are not yet sure that secrets detection is a priority for your security team, and prefer to run a lightweight experiment with an open-source tool.
Have significant resources to build out missing features such as: source control and alerting integrations, incident lifecycle management, issue tracking, content previews, and rich analytics.
