What is DevSecOps?
DevSecOps is the methodology of integration security within the DevOps pipeline, not just about tooling but also a cultural change like DevOps. DevSecOps aims to build more secure and reliable software by making security considerations an integral part of the development process rather than an afterthought or a separate phase.So basically:
- Incorporate Security far earlier into your software development lifecycle by using tools
- Creating a Security-as-Code culture
Why do you need DevSecOps?
Traditional security can’t keep up with DevOps’ pace, and DevSecOps makes it easier to manage development lifecycle and secure deployments.
Shifting left "saves Time and Cost" so security needs to be a part of the DevOps process to ensure safety.
Don’t just “Shift Left”, adopt a “Start Left” mentality.
Implement automation by using Security as Code
- By relying on traditional security testing, if a bug or vulnerability has been discovered in any later stages in your software development lifecycle, fixing or mitigating it can be more time consuming and costly.
- Instead, you should enable security controls in every stage of your DevOps pipeline and shift your security left.
