DevSecOps brings together the best of DevOps with modern security practices. DevOps streamlines and accelerates the product development lifecycle, aiming to automate as much as possible. DevSecOps maintains this automation focus and incorporates security — with a goal of making each step secure and bringing in new tools and practices to make the entire product more secure as well. This 2-part blog will focus on some established and emerging ways that DevSecOps plays a role in product delivery organizations ...

The logical extension of the DevOps cultural shift to address this need is DevSecOps: incorporating security throughout the delivery lifecycle rather than treating it as a separate, and potentially optional, concern. Let's dig deeper into some benefits of adopting DevSecOps culture and practices ...

Nearly 3,700 people told GitLab about their DevOps journeys. Respondents shared that their roles are changing dramatically, no matter where they sit in the organization. The lines surrounding the traditional definitions of dev, sec, ops and test have blurred, and as we enter the second half of 2020, it is perhaps more important than ever for companies to understand how these roles are evolving ...

Amid the current public health crisis, a vast majority of IT system administrators, DevOps teams and software engineers are forced to work remotely. It's a new way of working for many businesses, introducing sudden and widespread change to conventional workflows, processes, team collaboration and more. It's also creating security risks, opening new attack vectors while significantly expanding current ones ...

From SecOps to DevSecOps and SecDevOps, there seems to be an unending stream of new buzzwords in systems technology. With all this jargon, increasingly stories can read more like inside baseball rather than an intentional strategy. To understand insertion of "Security" into "‘DevOps", we need to reminisce about the origins of term "DevOps" ...

With very few exceptions, all software engineering teams are now operating in a fully distributed mode due to the COVID-19 crisis and our efforts to keep team members safe and avoid spreading the virus. For teams that were already fully distributed, the interruptions are likely minimal. But those that are making the rapid transition from fully- or partially-colocated to 100% distributed are experiencing significant disruptions to their operations — and their cloud security posture ...

There's a curious irony about two powerful and closely related developer tools in use today. On the one hand, enterprises of all sorts have moved quickly to embrace the use of containers and Kubernetes as part of their digital transformation, usually with a view to speeding the pace of new application development. Yet, according to a new survey from StackRox, almost half of those same users have applied the brakes, delaying the rollout of applications that make use of those technologies. The reasons for both their enthusiasm and their caution are understandable ...

Ensuring the safety of the apps we use every day is essential. Consumers need to know their app stores are offering vetted downloads. At the same time, personal discretion is essential — knowing not to allow access permissions on a simple flashlight app, for example, is part of technological literacy ...

Every mobile app is built around a set of APIs. In fact, it's not much of an exaggeration to describe APIs as the heart of day's modern mobile. Because of their centrality to the function of mobile apps, securing each API is a difficult task. The burden is placed squarely on mobile app developers, most of whom are not security experts ...

Zero-day vulnerabilities create security holes that can and almost certainly will be exploited. They also could crash your system when you do an upgrade. These threats aren't new, but their threat profile has increased; some of these vulnerabilities persist for long periods of time ...

While nearly 75 percent of developers worry about the security of their applications, and 85 percent rank security as very important in the coding and development process, nearly half of their teams lack a dedicated security expert ...

A lot of companies have gone down the path of DevOps, building and using containers and microservices. As a result, workloads are getting more complex. The Kubernetes ecosystem is very rich, and as more companies find value in using Kubernetes as a container orchestrator, they will adopt more solutions in the ecosystem. These advances mean we'll see increasingly complex workloads running in Kubernetes ...
