Hundreds of top companies trust Graphite with access to their GitHub repos. (And, just to be extra sure, we’re regularly pen-tested and audited.)

Reach out to our security team

Built with security in mind

We keep your reviews safe and your code safer.

Best practices

We follow industry standard practices around employee training and background checks, MDMs, on-call, etc.

SSO

Because we use Github authentication, when you remove a user from your Github we’ll immediately sync that as well.

Reliable

Hosted on AWS, our system is resilient to downtime

Encryption

In transit, at rest, and in our DB. Using industry standard HTTPS 1.2 and AES-256. Github API tokens are encrypted with additional keys protected via hardware-protected secrets.

Pen-tested

Both continuously by a suite of tools and annually by independent, third-parties. Contact us to request a report.

Audited

We’re currently going through the SOC2 process. If you would like us to fill out a security questionnaire in the meanwhile, reach out to our security team.

User data

Examples: Username, profile picture, email

Why: We use this data to provide accounts, profile pictures, etc.

Orgs

Examples: Teammates, Repos

Why: We use this data to provide team-level features and enable functionality like typeaheads for your teammates names.

Source code

Examples: Source code files

Why: Code review requires your developers to be able to review the code.

Callout: While we can read source code, we never store this on our side. Every time you view a pull request on Graphite we request the code from Github to be able to display to you.
