Why You Should Implement DevSecOps Approach?
DevSecOps represents development, security, and operation. DevSecOps aims to embed the
security process within the DevOps process.
The objective of DevSecOps is to embrace a "security as code" culture within the ongoing
flexible collaboration between security teams and release engineers.
Like DevOps, the DevSecOps movement focuses on creating new solutions within the Agile
framework for complex software development processes.
The goal of deploying DevSecOps is bridging the traditional gaps between the security, and IT
teams to ensure safe, fast delivery of code and test data.
Traditional processes are replaced by increased communication and security tasks' shared
responsibility during all phases of the delivery process.
How DevSecOps Operates?
DevSecOps approach comprises 6 components-
● Code analysis – This component involves delivering code in small chunks to identify
● Change management – Increasing efficiency and speed by allowing anyone to submit
changes and then determining whether it's a good or bad change.
● Compliance monitoring – Keeping your organization ready for an audit at any time
through a constant state of compliance, including gathering evidence of adherence to
● Threat investigation – Identification of emerging potential threats with each code
update and responding quickly.
● Vulnerability assessment – Identification of new vulnerabilities with code analysis and
then analyze the response and patching time.
● Security training – Training IT engineers and software professionals with guidelines for
In case you haven't already initiated the process, it's now time to merge your security goals with
DevOps to implement the 'Security as Code' DevSecOps culture.
For firms planning to merge security into their DevOps framework, the proper DevSecOps tools
can make the process seamless.
Let's take a look at a DevSecOps workflow:
● A developer develops a code within a version control management system.
