Need for Speed: Optimizing Data Masking Performance and Providing Secure Data for DevOps Users

Source – securityboulevard.com Let’s start with a pretty common life experience — you identify a need (e.g., transportation), you evaluate your options (e.g., evaluate car manufacturers, various features, pricing, etc.), and you decide to purchase (e.g., vehicle X). This process repeats itself over and over again regardless of the purchase. What typically happens following the purchase decision is also equally likely and transferrable — that is: How do I improve it? Increase efficiency? Can I tailor it to my individual needs?

Connectivity as Code: Making Network Security DevOps-Friendly

Source – devops.com DevOps is all about agility, with fast, short delivery cycles and automation for software development and applications. Enabled by recently introduced technologies such as virtualization, cloud and software-defined networking (SDN), spinning up new servers, provisioning storage in a public or private cloud or even launching whole environments can take just minutes or even seconds. But if that new application, service or environment needs a change in network connectivity or firewall rules to enable it to work, then the

Best Practices for Application Security Testing in the Era of DevOps and AI

Source – devops.com Application security testing is no easy feat. And yet, it’s usually the first topic that most articles about application security address. The reasons are simple: As the pace of application development techniques (and their inevitable vulnerabilities) evolve, AppSec personnel have found themselves caught between the desire to keep pace with their management of security testing requirements and their ability to allow the developer teams to operate in the modern, fast-paced ecosystem of DevOps and artificial intelligence. To better

How to align test automation with agile and devops

Source – infoworld.com One key devops best practice is instrumenting a continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline that automates the process of building software, packaging applications, deploying them to target environments, and instrumenting service calls to enable the application. This automation requires scripting individual procedures and orchestrating the steps from code check-in to running application. Once matured, devops teams use the automation to drive process change and strive to do smaller, more frequent deployments that deliver new functionality to users and improve quality. But there’s a significant assumption
