Key Reasons Businesses Need to Transform from DevOps to DevSecOps
As the industry has learned from DevOps, app development is only one component of the larger application lifecycle activity that must be completed.
Fremont, CA: DevOps arose from the necessity for modern applications to allow continuous integration, delivery, and deployment. As cyberthreats adapt and rise, and application development methodologies and time frames change, security is becoming an increasingly important aspect of today's application life cycle. As a result, companies should transition from DevOps to DevSecOps.
DevSecOps is required to address the security issues brought about by changes in the way programs are now created, deployed, and maintained. The following are some of the primary motivators for adopting DevSecOps:
The speed of new apps creation and updates:It is no secret that developers are under tremendous pressure to produce new applications and features in record time. Some industries, including as banking and financial services, are being challenged by more agile FinTech businesses that provide novel services and improved client interaction.The same is true when it comes to retail vs internet competition. And the majority of other organizations are undergoing a digital transformation. All of this involves the creation of more apps in less time.
As the industry has learned from DevOps, app development is only one component of the larger application lifecycle activity that must be completed. Again, there is a departure from precedent. Aside from the usual requirements for updating, patching, and maintaining software, today's users are accustomed to speedy responses to their requests. They think like an app store. When customers call out a flaw or suggest an improvement, they expect it to be handled right away.
They expect the same level of immediacy from their business applications. It is no longer sufficient to file items in Jira or another project tracking system for later review; actions must be completed immediately.
The drive for speed in both app development and enhancement often overshadow security concerns.
