UI Upgrade




Months of iterations and dozens of user feedback led us to improve our User Interface.

New inventory layout

  • Components are now displayed as cards for better readability.
  • The component detection date has been added.
  • You can change the status of components directly from the inventory page.


New component page layout

  • Component information has been moved to the left and lightened for better readability.


Additional information about Git Integrations

  • For users relying on the Broker: an event log including Activity date, Version, and Container UUID, has been added.
  • For users relying on the Bearer GitHub Action: an event log has been added.


Automated data discovery & classification




Data discovery and classification are now fully automated.

Bearer’s detection engine supports 120+ data types, including personal, health, and financial data. See the full list of data types here.

You can create your own data categories - which regroup data types - to fit your data taxonomy.

Data type processed can be seen in your inventory and on the page of a component.



GitHub Actions integration




You can now integrate Bearer directly in your CI/CD pipeline with a GitHub Action (see documentation).

Thus you can use Bearer without creating and managing a Personal Access Token.

Continuous code scanning




Bearer now automatically scans your codebase once a week to update your inventory of engineering components.

You can customize the frequency at which Bearer scans your codebase (once a day, once a week, once a month).

Bearer performs diff-aware scans so you can focus on risks in recent code changes.

Broker update




A new version of the Broker is available with:

  • Better support for detections in markup files (HTML, PHP, ERB, ASPX, Jupiter notebook, etc.).
  • Overall improved domain detection and classification.
  • Detection of data types for OpenAPI, GraphQL, Protobuf and SQL files
  • Experimental detection of internal API paths.
  • Improved error handling and memory usage.

To update the Broker please run docker pull bearersh/broker:latest

Introducing: Bearer inventory




Scan your codebase

Bearer integrates with GitHub and GitLab and scans your code repositories to discover connected engineering components including databases, internal & external APIs, and message buses.

We support the following languages: Ruby, Javascript, Python, PHP, Go, Java and C#.


Build your inventory

Enrich your inventory with sensitive data flows and security controls.

If needed you can collect such information from your engineering team via light-touch questionnaires embedded in GitHub / GitLab.
