A ‘shifting left’ approach allows teams to build security into the design and pre-development phase of applications, and apply and assess security throughout development, security, and operations (DevSecOps) processes. DevSecOps creates new opportunities to simplify security, such as taking advantage of automation to speed testing and avoid slowing down deployment. It also empowers your organization to change its approach to updating and patching software.
However, many organizations struggle to put the theory of DevSecOps into workable practice and fall short of addressing issues through proactive security measures.
- 65% of developers believe that the software delivery culture within their organization prioritizes speed, automation, and continuous delivery of applications over addressing potential security risks.
- In terms of remediating security issues, only 56% of developers state their organization requires secure coding for their applications, and less than half state they feel empowered to identify vulnerabilities during the coding process.
Our eBook offers practical recommendations on how developers and security teams alike can move towards a DevSecOps model in any organization – with a goal of shared responsibility and creating a perpetual and repeatable process. We include guidance on which tooling and approaches to consider for application security, and how to integrate them within the development process without impacting innovation and deadlines.
