DevSecOps is a misnomer. Smashing Security in between Dev and Ops is the wrong way to think about optimizing your DevOps + Security pipeline. Some tend to believe security is a blocker to getting new applications out to production. Owned by some distant, unapproachable team, security can seem like the new deep divide with a ‘throw it over the wall’ mentality.

Security must be sprinkled throughout the DevOps cycle, taught from the beginning when developing best practices and automating compliant infrastructure and owned by both DevOps and Security, working together as a team.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say again. A true DevSecOps Transformation includes an evolution of your company culture, automation and technology, processes, collaboration, measurement systems, and organizational structure.

A DevSecOps transformation can help you:

  • Deliver software faster and more securely
  • Enable collaboration with cross-functional teams
  • Improve software and operations quality
  • Create a culture of automated, secure processes
  • Improve your cloud security posture
