9 Ways DevOps and Automation Bolster Security and Compliance
Given the increasing number of data breaches and new, global legislation protecting consumers’ personal data, security and compliance remain critical to businesses’ survival. In an attempt to satisfy both DevOps and security teams, some organizations moved towards a “shift security left” approach, which looked to integrate security earlier in the development process and called it DevSecOps.
More recently, forward-looking enterprises have recognized that DevSecOps goes well beyond “shifting security left” to “shifting security everywhere.” By baking security processes and technology into the core automation and DevOps practices they employ across the entire software delivery lifecycle, enterprises can discover more issues prior to release, detect and prevent drift and elegantly respond to post-release issues. The complete DevSecOps approach ensures software is secure in development, delivery and in production.
