What is DevSecOps?
DevSecOps is an abbreviation for “Development, Security, and Operations”. It is a software development process approach, which integrates the practices related to security during the whole application’s lifecycle, connecting them with the DevOps methods.
The aim of DevSecOps is to ensure the security of the software on every level of development and deployment of the application, from designing through testing, implementing to maintaining. In the DevSecOps the development, security and operational teams cooperate with each other to quickly identify and repair the potential gaps and threats related to the security of the system.
The key components of DevSecOps consist of automation, monitoring, security audits and quick reacting to the incidents. Thanks to this approach, the companies can build and implement the application faster and more securely, increasing the resistance to attacks and minimizing the risk of security related incidents.
