Cyber Security Solutions For DevSecOps

DevSecOps is a practice in application security (AppSec) that involves introducing security earlier and integrates it throughout the software development life cycle (SDLC). DevSecOps requires collaboration between developer and operations teams to ensure security teams is considered in every phase of the development cycle. DevSecOps is not just an industry buzzword, it must become part of the culture, be integrated in the process, and enlist the assistance of tools across all parts of the organization making security a shared responsibility. Every participant, from business owners, executives, developers and IT personnel all play a role in building security into the DevOps continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) workflow.

“75 percent of hacks happen at the application level.”

Preventing Risks

Most enterprise developers can recite various software architecture layers as though it’s the easy question on the computer science final exam: operating system, application server, Web server, database server, application, network. Providing security at each of these levels is important, and traditionally accountability lies with the network and production staff (OPS). However, a few new statistics, stress new security efforts that development and quality assurance teams must make during the application development life cycle.

According to Theresa Lanowitz, Gartner Inc. research director, the problems of network and physical security within IT have largely been solved, leaving the application layer the most vulnerable. Today, claims Lanowitz, “75 percent of hacks happen at the application.” As a result, companies that don’t take responsibility for security issues during the development process are significantly more likely to experience a catastrophic event.

Benefits of DevSecOps

For the last decade or so, the concept of DevSecOps has been evolving, with more organizations reaping the benefits of DevSecOps.

  • Cost reduction – by detecting and addressing security issues during the development phases
  • Speedier recovery – having clear steps to follow in a specific incident – from vulnerability report to a breach
  • More resilient product or service – with security baked in, there are fewer vulnerable components available for bad agents to take advantage of

Our Process

We start the process with a DevOps assessment where our experienced team will analyze your current DevOps environment and processes where we identify current gaps and blockers that interfere with adhering to highest security standards. Once complete, we provide you with an executive summary of our findings along with a roadmap to implement the recommended improvements.

After that we can assist with implementing the roadmap recommendations, tool selection and process reengineering to help make the shift from a DevOps organization to a more security focused DevSecOps organization.
