StepSecurity Platform Secures All Three Layers of GitHub Actions

Go beyond the limited pipeline as code checks offered by other security vendors

Third-Party GitHub Actions: Use safe and reliable StepSecurity Maintained Actions
GitHub Actions Workflows: Auto remediate pipeline as code security misconfigurations
Actions Runners: Defend your CI/CD servers against security attacks

Say Goodbye to the Hassles of Risky GitHub Actions

GitHub Actions has 20,000+ third-party Actions in the marketplace. Enterprises face several challenges regarding the use of third-party GitHub Actions.

Lack of Maintenance and Security Controls: Many third-party Actions are not regularly maintained and fall short in implementing fundamental security best practices. No standard objective way to measure the security posture of a third-party GitHub Action.
Dilemma for Security Teams: Confronted with a risky third-party Action, security teams usually have two choices:
1. Approve it and accept the associated risks.
2. Reject it, leading to potential conflict with developers and decreased productivity.
Neither option aligns well with the needs of an enterprise.
Maintenance of Forked Actions: Forked Actions require ongoing maintenance, such as updating dependencies and synchronizing with the upstream repository for new features or bug fixes. This maintenance effort escalates as more Actions are adopted.

StepSecurity Actions governance empowers enterprises to take control of third-party Actions

Visibility: StepSecurity discovers all Actions in use across your GitHub organization.
Measure Risk: StepSecurity provides a risk score for each GitHub Action based on security best practices.
Secure and Reliable: Developers can confidently use StepSecurity Maintained Actions, assured of their safety and reliability. These Actions meet high-security standards, significantly reducing risks.

Auto-fix GitHub Actions workflow misconfigurations and standardize DevOps workflows

Discovering, tracking, and remediating Github Actions workflow misconfigurations across a large number of repositories inside an enterprise can be daunting. Enforcing consistent DevOps security controls at

Limited Visibility: At scale, enterprises struggle with visibility in GitHub Actions workflow misconfigurations. 
Manual Remediation: Security teams at enterprises work with engineering teams to manually remediate security misconfigurations in GitHub Actions workflow files. 
No DevOps Standardization: In large enterprises, it's hard for Security and DevOps teams to standardize GitHub Action workflows across all repositories.

StepSecurity Harden-Runner is a purpose-built network and runtime security solution for GitHub Actions

Complete Security Visibility: StepSecurity provides 100% coverage of all GitHub Action workflow files in an enterprise environment.
Automated Remediation Pull Requests: StepSecurity creates automated pull requests inline with standard DevOps workflows to emplwer Enterprises to fix pipeline as code security misconfigurations with ease at scale.
Workflow Standardization: Leverage the power of StepSecurity's automated pull requests to standardize GitHub Action workflows across your entire organization.

Defend Your CI/CD Infrastructure Against Security Attacks

GitHub Actions runs untrusted code in a privileged environment. Compromised workflows, dependencies, and build tools can steal source code/credentials, tamper source code, and build artifacts during the build.

Lack of Runtime Visibility: Enterprises don't have any runtime visibility for their GitHub Actions workflow runs. Traditional CDR/EDR tools fail to work with GitHub Actions runners. 
Lack of Network Egress Filtering: GitHub Actions runners don't have any built-in network egress filtering, allowing workflows to make outbound calls to all endpoints on the internet. Malicious actors use this capability to steal secrets (e.g., the Codecov breach) and source code from the enterprise GitHub Actions environment.
Lack of Source Code and Build Integrity: Malicious actors can maliciously tamper source code files on the runner server before a production build is created to inject their backdoor (e.g., the SolarWinds breach).

StepSecurity Harden-Runner is a purpose-built network and runtime security solution for GitHub-hosted and self-hosted runners

Contextualized Security Observability: StepSecurity provides contextualized runtime security insights correlated with each step of the workflow.
Network Egress filtering: Enterprises specify an allowed list of endpoints for each workflow job or runner cluster. Harden-Runner blocks network traffic to all other endpoints.
Detect Source Code Tampering on Runner: StepSecurity monitors all file events and flag suspicious source code and build overwrite events.
