Deploying DevSecOps with Scalability in Mind

Businesses of all sizes are embracing the DevOps model to accelerate digital transformation and become more agile. While few can dispute the benefits that the DevOps model brings to businesses, security concerns exist. Many businesses, in their rush to deploy applications rapidly and embrace a continuous delivery cycle, are overlooking the importance of cybersecurity.

The cybersecurity challenge no longer can be treated as an afterthought or left to separate cybersecurity teams to deal with once an application goes live. It is a challenge that must be met in the world of DevOps by taking a security-first approach during the development process, one that is being met by the concept of DevSecOps, in which cybersecurity becomes intertwined with the development pipeline.

However, many organizations are still unsure how to create partnerships between cybersecurity, development and operations, leading to some negative outcomes and potential failures. Some organizations have dismissed DevSecOps as a way forward due to issues such as scale, cybersecurity-induced delays or even lack of teamwork. Where then does this leave the modern enterprise that values rapid application development and a continuous delivery cycle but must also consider the cybersecurity implications in real-time? The answer comes in understanding better how DevSecOps can fit into the development pipeline and bring with it the ability to continuously improve security while sprinting to the next release of code.
