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.
