"It took our team six months to deploy Snyk, and even then, we couldn't get it to full coverage."

Code is never pulled to the cloud

Switch from Snyk to Jit.io to accelerate your Product Security program at an affordable price and a unified DevSecOps platform covering the whole attack surface: AppSec-CI/CD-Cloud Security-DAST.

Code is scanned in GH via GitHub actions and is never pulled to Jit’s cloud, so Jit never obtains a copy of your code.
