Alignment of development and operations teams through DevOps has made it possible to build customized software and business applications in far quicker time. However, in most cases security has not been accorded a high priority in DevOps implementation and is often viewed as a roadblock to rapid development.
Though organizations are increasingly focused on breaking down the traditional silos between the development, testing and operations teams, they are not integrating security into their development process, which makes them susceptible to the risk of threats and vulnerabilities.
Here is where DevSecOps comes in. The DevSecOps approach includes incorporating security as a major component of the DevOps practices. Through continuous monitoring, assessment and analysis, DevSecOps ensures that any loopholes and weaknesses are identified early in the development process and remediated immediately.
