Top DevSecOps Challenges to Watch for in 2022
DevOps deployment, when done effectively, may be beneficial to any firm. Improved team collaboration, faster time to market, higher total efficiency, enhanced customer loyalty, and many other benefits are examples of this.
Fremont, CA: DevOps has changed how developers and operations engineers think. The DevOps paradigm has changed the way software and technologies get developed. As a result, enhancing performance and providing a speedier result has become the industry norm for satisfying market needs.
On the other hand, security has emerged as a new worry as the infrastructure matures, and developers regularly work to resolve it. Security experts have got forced to consider possibilities for implementing security measures within the DevOps process, addressing the full implementation cycle. It gets intended to prevent and mitigate security vulnerabilities as they occur throughout the software development process.
DevOps deployment, when done effectively, may be beneficial to any firm. Improved team collaboration, faster time to market, higher total efficiency, enhanced customer loyalty, and many other benefits are examples of this. But, if users don't have security in mind, users may lose all of them in the blink of an eye. As a result, we'll add a "Sec" to DevOps to be safe. Let's see the DevSecOps technique and the DevSecOps problems you may face while incorporating it into your workflows.
There are several hurdles to implementing DevSecOps. Here are a few examples:
• The cultural shift
Reluctance is the most important hurdle that most businesses confront when implementing a DevSecOps approach. Many people would find it challenging to make big changes to what they've been doing for years. And the perception that security was an optional addition in past app development methodologies does not help matters.
Another typical stumbling block is the belief that more security slows things down and inhibits innovation. Developers seek to develop code rapidly to meet the demands of modern businesses. On the other hand, security departments are primarily concerned with assuring the code's security. These two teams can't work together since their aims are so distinct.
• Complex tool integrations
Different suppliers provide the bulk of DevOps toolchains. Teams select source code management, CI/CD, build tools, binary libraries, code review, and problem monitoring solutions according to their individual needs.
Adding security measures complicates matters even more. Insecurity analysis, static application security testing (SAST), software composition analysis (SCA), and some types of dynamic testing approaches gets commonly utilized. Developers want a clear view of the issues. However, combining and reconciling data from diverse suppliers' resources might be problematic.
