DevSecOps is the DevOps community’s approach to bringing security into the development lifecycle. Businesses want to deliver software, but cannot afford to release unreliable or insecure applications— therefore security needs to be baked in much sooner than it has traditionally been.
DevSecOps shifts security ‘left’ to find and fix vulnerabilities earlier in the software development life cycle. It includes the benefits of DevOps such as developing, deploying and delivering new features at a rapid pace, but it also provides a more proactive approach to identifying and addressing bug in real time to bring security risks significantly down.
Just like DevOps, culture will remain a barrier to a successful DevSecOps solution. In addition to bringing the developers and operation teams together, now they need to figure out how to work with the security team towards the same goals and objectives. Bringing the security team in sooner will help them understand the code and work with the development team in a more productive manner.
In today’s era of digital transformation, every organization must focus on application security. However, focusing on security vulnerabilities alone is unwise because it’s nearly impossible to prioritize what needs to be done. “DevOps teams are sitting in front of a table with the keys to the kingdom on their computers,” said Jake King, co-founder and … continue reading
DevSecOps isn’t just a practice, it’s a continuous learning experience. If you want to be successful faster, avoid these common misconceptions. #1: Business as usual is good enough Cybercriminals are constantly changing their tactics. If your organization’s application security practices are static, they aren’t as robust as they should be. RELATED CONTENT: How to get … continue reading
DevOps and security teams are learning how to work together, albeit somewhat awkwardly in these early days of DevSecOps. One reason why it can be difficult to get the partnership “right” is that people define DevSecOps in different ways. “If you asked a room of 10 people to define DevSecOps, you’d get 15 definitions. I … continue reading

To understand an enterprise’s current state of software security risk, executives, security practitioners and development teams need information. Benchmarks provide useful information on performance and risk. However, ideas about which benchmarks are most important will differ depending upon the corporate stakeholder to whom you’re speaking. For example, a business decision-maker has to justify the expense … continue reading
The rise of DevSecOps has stressed the importance of shifting security left in order to provide better protection. A recently released report, though, found shifting left isn’t enough. In order for security to be viewed as more than just an extra step, it needs to be built into the entire life cycle. Puppet, CircleCI and … continue reading
The security aspect of DevOps is evolving as new data found a new wave of engineering-led software security efforts originating bottom-up in the development and operations teams rather than top-down from a centralized software security group (SSG). Software security initiatives (SSIs) have identified a number of individuals (often developers, testers, and architects) who are invested … continue reading
