Workato is now a GitHub secret scanning partner

GitHub secret scanning protects users by searching repositories for known types of secrets. By identifying and flagging these secrets, our scans help prevent data leaks and fraud.

We have partnered with Workato to scan for their API tokens and help secure our mutual users on public repositories. Workato Developer API tokens allow users to effectively manage their Workato workspaces programmatically and reduce administrative overhead as they onboard teams from across their organisation. GitHub will forward access tokens found in public repositories to Workato, which will then notify the user about the leaked token. You can read more information about Workato's tokens here.

All users can scan for and block Workato's tokens from entering their public repositories for free with push protection. GitHub Advanced Security customers can also scan for and block Workato tokens in their private repositories.

The 2023 updates to our ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certificate can be downloaded now. In addition, we have completed the processes for ISO/IEC 27701:2019 (PII Processor), ISO/IEC 27018:2019, and CSA STAR certifications. Those certificates can also be downloaded now.

With GHES 3.9, you and your organization can better manage your Dependabot alerts thanks to more granular enablement controls. You can now enable Dependabot alerts at the repository, organization, and enterprise level, rather than having to enable Dependabot alerts across an entire enterprise at once.

This release also adds support for “automatically enable for new repositories” at the organization and enterprise levels.

Enterprise admins still need to opt in to Dependabot alerts via GitHub Connect, which approves outbound calls for advisories to sync.
