How to Maintain Security when Rolling out DevOps

Source – informationweek.com DevOps may be up and running for your enterprise. Taking the time to integrate security will keep it that way. While DevOps is relatively new to mainstream enterprises, DevSecOps is even newer. And arguably it is just as important.
