Delivering business value in the digital economy requires a high-speed approach – now more critical than ever in today’s global crisis. It is important to acquire an agile infrastructure and adopt automation tools to ensure organizations recover faster and remain resilient to any disruption that may come our way.
A software developer is a person concerned with facets of the software development process.
The advance of cloud, containers and microservices also led to the emergence of what the industry calls the DevOps culture, where developers can now provision and scale the infrastructure they need without waiting for a separate infrastructure team to do it for them. All major cloud providers now offer APIs and configuration tools that allow treating infrastructure configuration as code using deployment templates. DevSecOps is the attempt to correct that and fully integrate security testing into the continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) pipelines, but also build up the knowledge and skills needed in the development team so that the results of testing and the fixing can also be done internally.
In order apply AI and automation, we must first obtain visibility into what is going on in an IT environment. That is why observability is so important, observability provides deep visibility into modern distributed applications for faster, automated problem identification and resolution. Observability allows you to collect metrics, track each step of the CI/CD pipeline, and stay on top of any risks or problems that arise. With observable CI/CD pipelines, software teams can ensure the reliability, performance and health of their infrastructure and applications, across the entire development and operations lifecycles.
Businesses today are in a highly regulated world where data privacy and trust have become critical to retaining customers and avoiding fines. There is natural tension between the need for speed and the need to ensure compliance. To balance the dance between these two, IT teams need a strong platform that helps them deliver software faster while remaining compliant and protecting critical data and processes. Integrated compliance monitoring provides a framework to do this, enabling teams to move quickly while providing traceability and more reliable controls. DevSecOps leverages the strengths of both compliance teams and DevOps teams to yield a process that works better for both.
The purpose and intent of DevSecOps is to build on the mindset that everyone is responsible for security with the goal of safety distributing security decisions at speed and scale to those who hold the highest level of context without sacrificing the safety required.
In this three-part webinar series, learn how DevSecOps can help your business to obtain high quality and secured applications by understanding the infrastructure day to day operations.
