How to Secure Your Code with Hailbytes Git on AWS

What is HailBytes?

HailBytes is a cybersecurity firm that lowers operational costs, boosts productivity, and allows for greater scalability by offering safe software infrastructure in the cloud.

Git Server on AWS

The HailBytes Git Server provides a secure, supported, and easy-to-manage versioning system for your code. This allows users to save code, track revision history, and combine code changes. The system has security updates and uses an open source development that is free of hidden backdoors. 

This self-hosted Git service is easy to use and powered by Gitea. In many ways, it is like GitHub, Bitbucket, and Gitlab. It provides support for Git revision control, developer wiki pages, and issue tracking. You will be able to access and maintain your code with ease because of the functionality and familiar interface. The HailBytes Git Server is very easy to set up. All you have to do is go on AWS Marketplace or other cloud markets and buy it from there or try the free trial.

AWS CodeCommit

Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers AWS CodeCommit which is a managed source control service for your Git repositories. It provides a version control that is safe and scalable with support for tools like Jenkins. You can build as many new Git repositories as you need with AWS CodeCommit. You can also import pre existing ones from third-party services like GitHub or our Git Server. It is very secure since you can specify who can read or write code and files inside your repositories. This is only possible since AWS CodeCommit has integrated authentication and access control features. You can build many teams with varied permissions for each repository. They would not have complete control of the repository material like read-only permissions. Also, with webhooks or other integrations with devices you can specify how they should access each repository. Collaborating with teams is very easy since AWS CodeCommit integrates with well-known developer tools. It doesn’t matter what development environments others use whether it’s Visual Studio or Eclipse. All you need is an internet connection and you can access the code repositories. Thanks to the thorough documentation and training provided by AWS, getting started with AWS CodeCommit is simple. The documentation is linked here and if you would like a formal course to learn more about codecommit you can have a 10 day free trial here. It will be $45 per month after the free trial.
