DevOps is a methodology that combines practices and tools that enhance cooperation between developers and IT operation teams across the software development life cycle (SDLC). It aims to improve the quality of the software and shorten the development cycle with continuous feedback, automation, and shared ownership.
The DevSecOps model integrates cybersecurity and risk mitigation into the SDLC. You imbue security practices, automated testing, and a shared responsibility culture into your application development from the very beginning. That’s in contrast with traditional development models, where teams usually perform security checks close to the product's release date.
DevOps and DevSecOps work hand in hand. Outdated security can derail even DevOps initiatives, resulting in hidden system vulnerabilities and laborious code rewrites. Companies that want to make the most out of DevOps should strive to implement DevSecOps practices into their pipelines.
These practices are effective as you can incorporate them into your business. So, let’s look at their components in greater detail.
