Enterprise application security has traditionally not been embraced by software developers — they have historically been incentivized to place a higher value on the fast delivery of new features and functions. Additionally, secure web application development testing tools do not tend to integrate easily with classic development tools and processes.
With DevOps, however, the pain of security testing can be more easily mitigated. Security in DevOps can be built through automated testing at critical points throughout the development lifecycle. Security in DevOps is no longer the domain of security experts with specialized knowledge, but simply a routine part of the delivery process. By integrating security into DevOps, developers can easily and routinely produce software that is free of flaws, helping to accelerate timelines and improve the quality of each release.
The DevOps approach gives infosec groups an opportunity to integrate security earlier in the software development and deployment process, as long as they’re willing to accommodate the cultural changes that come with the territory.
