DevSecops — Integrating Security into the DevOps Process

What is DevSecOps?

Limitation of the Traditional Way of DevOps

Benefits of Following DevSecOps Practices

  • Hackers always find their way to get into an application to exploit the software, which usually incurs losses for the organization. DevSecOps helps in saving cost and time by eliminating security incidents. It ensures security in each phase and has secured a crucial role in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).
  • The growing requirements of businesses have made it almost inevitable to integrate security protocols from the very beginning in the DevOps process. If an organization wants a product to be delivered quickly with all the security measures, it has to look into the option of adapting the DevSecOps approach.
  • Implementing DevSecOps has shown commendable results in achieving better efficiency and a higher return on investment (ROI).
  • Another advantage of DevSecOps is that it helps in regulatory compliance of the product, which means the product can be sold hassle-free.

Challenges in Implementing DevSecOps

  • The biggest challenge is to get the Development and Security teams to work together. The teams should coordinate in each phase of the development process to get the best out of the DevSecOps approach.
  • Choosing the right tools is a huge challenge. Since each team uses different tools, it is important to integrate the tools to build, deploy, and test in a stable manner.
  • It’s not wise to run after perfection in the initial stages of implementing DevSecOps as it may take some time to merge the processes to make them work in a synchronized manner. You can see a remarkable difference once all the processes of DevSecOps are in sync.
