A new age of technology is here; a new age within DevOps. With a lot of conversations around this niche domain, a newer sect has come into being – DevSecOps. Security, traditionally, has been looked at and implemented in silos – generally at the end of any development cycle. With such compartmentalization, the whole SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) gets affected and the processes slow down even further.
With the advent of DevOps, development processes have surely expedited but with the inclusion of security within, an end-to-end process comes into being. Security is seamlessly amalgamated and automated within the DevOps journey and is kept in between to identify and eliminate any and all possible security vulnerabilities during the process itself.
The ushering of a new age with DevSecOps has brought in an array of benefits along – making it a go-to strategy for organizations. To name a few –
There are other numerous advantages as well since DevSecOps has completely transformed the realm. Digital transformation has ushered in a new age of technologies, strategies and business operations as a whole – DevSecOps has become a key value-add within.
As organizations increasingly shift to a new DevOps environment and culture, the need of the hour also states the inclusion of DevSecOps. As DevOps, DevSecOps also needs to be understood as an ongoing journey and should be embraced comprehensively and throughout. Also, with organizations implementing DevOps, security teams also need to be at par with the frequent iterations and faster releases. What better than to include it from the get-go, itself? DevSecOps thus, is slowly paving its way within the broader functioning of organizations as well as in their pursuit of the DevOps culture.
DevSecOps has also become the need of the hour to bring in robustness of organizations’ security posture. In this day and age, with cyber attacks on the rise, organizations’ data is at the disposal of malicious hackers – compromising any and all confidential information of organizations or its users. A robust security posture can be surely achieved with coherent practices in place – a crucial one being DevSecOps. This will help security teams get involved in the product from the early stages and effectively collaborate with other teams for proactive deliverables.
Thus, DevSecOps is the present as well as the future. Organizations need to understand its significance and incorporate it within their DevOps processes to expedite their SDLC as well as create value-add – with the right tools and strategies in place. As the technological realm undergoes a transformation, organizations need to be better prepared to take on any challenges that may arise. Siloed operations are a thing of the past now, and the future of collaboration is waiting for us. So, what are you waiting for?
