What Is DevOps?
DevOps, in its pure definition, is the principle of combining development and IT operations and putting it under a “single automated umbrella.”
It has helped organizations deliver applications and services quickly. At the same time, it has accelerated the evolution and improvement of these services than organizations that are still using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes.
However, due to its high-performing nature, many security and compliance monitoring tools still cannot keep up with the change and cannot test code at a speed that is required by DevOps applications.
Why Is DevSecOps Important?
With DevSecOps, it allows this integration to function with added security. However, rather than security that functions as a perimeter around data and applications, it’s built-in security, which automates security gates to maintain DevOps workflow and prevent it from slowing down.
Through DevSecOps, you can observe and trace your application’s delivery process, so you know who is deploying what, when is it deployed, and in what environment.
Furthermore, it has improved the ROI in existing security infrastructure and has enhanced the operational efficiencies throughout cybersecurity and the rest of IT.
When integrating security in DevOps to produce DevSecOps, it may require new ideas, processes, and tools. Security leaders and risk management experts must adhere to the collaborative and agile nature of DevOps so that it remains transparent and seamless in the development process.
