Better, faster, cheaper software with DevOps, but is it secure?

Source- theregister.co.uk

Webcast The future of DevOps is all about speeding up software development and deployment, aided by cloud-based infrastructure, Restful APIs and open-source software.

There’s a general assumption that if everyone can see the open-source code, the chances are somebody somewhere has spotted any vulnerabilities and fixed them. Join the forums and you will see they are full of recently discovered exploits and patches.

But with the bad guys stepping up the pace of their attacks, changing methods, swapping techniques and turning to automation to hack your systems, you can’t just sit back and hope they will kindly overlook your applications and data.

Even if you have diligently followed the new tighter General Data Protection Regulations and taken all the right steps to secure your data, how can you be sure you have done enough?

What if your software is still reliant on an older version? How do you know which packages are involved? What are their licensing terms?

Organisations can find themselves either in a blind spot where they don’t know if they are at risk, or in a bottleneck because they are slowing down their DevOps cycles in their efforts to find out.

If you are dependent on open source for your DevOps-based delivery and you want to head off the threats before they materialise, tune in to this webinar to learn how to avoid this dilemma.

We’ll be speaking to experts from application security specialist CA Veracode and to analyst Freeform Dynamics about the state of open-source security in DevOps.

We will look at examples of where things have gone wrong, how things can be put right and how disasters can be averted.

Discover the scale of current threats and their potential consequences, and learn about the technologies and practices that can help you make sure the faster and better software coming out of your DevOps cycle is also secure.
