Security in DevOps Is Lagging Despite Advantages and Opportunities

Source – bwcio.businessworld.in Synopsys Inc. has released new data that highlights the opportunities and challenges of DevSecOps, an emerging paradigm in which DevOps teams incorporate application security into their continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) workflows. The 451 Research report commissioned by Synopsys, DevSecOps Realities and Opportunities, analyses survey results from 350 enterprise decision-makers at large enterprises across a variety of industries. The study found that only half of CI/CD workflows include application security testing elements despite respondents citing awareness

Why software resilience should be the real goal of DevOps

Source – techtarget.com Years ago, I worked for an organization that prided itself on its internal controls for software. Using a work order, developers had to get every box checked and then outline the steps to move the code to production. If there was a problem, systems would be down, and any “fix” would require a similar rigorous — and documented — process. That single-minded focus on reliability meant we had to batch changes together into projects and roll out less often. It became a

The Two Key Ways to Monitor DevOps Projects

Source – itbusinessedge.com One of the chief challenges in monitoring DevOps projects is the fact that the resulting application or service is usually pushed out to the cloud or a mobile platform. In many cases, this involves third-party infrastructure and/or monitoring solutions, which can leave the enterprise blind to key performance data. To accommodate this, DevOps teams will need to incorporate two practices that aim to gauge performance across distributed architectures: synthetic monitoring and real user monitoring (RUM). The difference lies in the

DevSecOps: How to get your team on board

Source – enterprisersproject.com A funny thing happened as IT embraced DevOps and broke down longstanding silos between teams: Many organizations created new silos in their place, around security. “We found through our research that DevOps and security teams are already operating in silos, and the rush to the cloud is exacerbating this disconnect,” says Pete Cheslock, senior director at Threat Stack. “Teams are increasingly isolated, and they’re facing a steep learning curve.” This is why you’re increasingly hearing the term DevSecOps. You’re forgiven if you’re skeptical

The integration of DevOps and security

Source – jaxenter.com The cloud delivers to enterprises operational and management advantages by being agile, user friendly, and optimized to scale. It also enables IT teams to apply continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) methods to deliver applications and functionality more rapidly. By using the development and delivery methodology known as DevOps, the entire organization can be more responsive to customer and market needs and deliver innovation continuously. Speed is the essence of DevOps; the idea is to iterate, iterate, iterate, and get

Secdevops or devsecops or devops next-generation (NG) – What is your take on devops?

Source – csoonline.com I recently had the opportunity to attend and present at the Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) Devops Summit last month. There was, as expected given the topic, a huge turn-out of US federal, commercial and public-sector participants looking to learn, connect and share lessons from adopting and implementing devops in their organizations. A key moment at the summit conference was an informal survey of over 200 participants by Tom Suder, the President of ATARC. Tom pulsed the

GitLab 10.6: CI/CD for GitHub, increased Kubernetes support

Source – jaxenter.com DevOps without CI/CD is like trying to build a house out of popsicle sticks. Sure, it can be done, but oh man, are you making your life harder than it needs to be. So, the fact that GitLab, one of the most popular Git-repositories on the internet, still didn’t support CI/CD with GitHub has been something of a thing. Now, that problem is gone forever with GitLab 10.6. GitLab’s popular built-in continuous integration, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment
