Since our first public release in 2018, our pricing model has been tied to repositories and hasn't changed at all. We have been now operating for several years and are used by thousands of developers and companies around the globe. Our initial pricing model no longer reflects the value GuardRails provides and the levers it is tied to. We are glad to announce our new pricing model and pricing plans that are even better tailored to the needs of our growing user base.

New Pricing Plans

The new pricing plans are no longer tied to repositories, but to active developers. An active developer is defined as anyone (including bots) that are committing towards a code base within a 30 day window. Based on the paid plan you are on, there is a minimum amount of developers regardless of activity. E.g for the standard plan that's one developer, for the professional plan it is 10 developers.

Free Plan

This tier is for individuals and small teams that can get value from GuardRails and don’t have to pay for it. This plan only supports scanning of PRs and on-demand via the dashboard, but not scanning of every commit. This plan starts with 1 active developer and can be increased to up to 5 active developers by leaving reviews on accepted sites, providing testimonials, etc. For more information please contact [email protected].

Standard Plan

This is the first paid tier that is coming with most core features, starting with at least 1 developer. This plan only supports scanning of PRs and on-demand via the dashboard, but not scanning of every commit. Insights are supported, as are custom configuration of engine rules. Scan results retention is capped at 30 days.

Professional Plan

The professional plan comes fully featured, without any restrictions and starts at 10 active developers. The plan supports scanning of all code-changes, custom engines, full language support, and unlimited scan result retention.

Enterprise Plans

The Enterprise Plans is fully featured, without any restrictions, starts at 25 developers and allows deploying GuardRails in your own data center. You can reach out to [email protected] to start an on-premise trial.

Legacy Plans

All our existing paid users that are on legacy plans will be able to retain their plans for the forseeable future. If you are interested in upgrading to the new plans, we are happy to support you with that and will extend discounts. Reach out to us at [email protected] to learn more.
