Hi. Thank you for your question and reaching out. I’d be more than happy to help you with your query.
It's possible that the Git Defender for Cloud Apps tool is rating Git as having a low compliance and legal score due to its open source nature and the fact that it is widely used in various industries and regions, which may have different regulations and standards. For example, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to all organizations that process personal data of individuals in the European Union (EU), regardless of whether the organization is based in the EU or not.
Additionally, various ISO standards, such as ISO 27001 for information security management, may also apply to organizations using Git to store sensitive data or code. If Git does not have built-in features to ensure compliance with these regulations and standards, it may receive a lower score in compliance and legal.
It's worth noting that the tool is designed to provide a comprehensive evaluation of cloud applications and their compliance with different regulations and standards. The rating of 0 in compliance and 2 in legal for Git may not necessarily reflect the actual security or compliance of Git itself, but rather the tool's assessment of how well Git fits into a specific organization's compliance and legal requirements.
It's important to evaluate each cloud application on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the specific regulations and standards that apply to the organization and its data. If you have concerns about the rating given to Git by the Git Defender for Cloud Apps tool, it may be useful to consult with a security or compliance expert to get a more in-depth understanding of the issue.
