ENABLING DEVOPS WITH A BETTER SECURITY STRATEGY

Source – datacenterjournal.com Survey data from Qualia suggests that as DevOps becomes mainstream, both organizational resources and budget allocation tied to measurable business outcomes will be attached to this method of rapid application development. DevOps enables a faster iterative process that drives innovation while doing more with less and increasing efficiency. It’s all a productive, well-oiled machine—until the security or auditing team arrives. When that happens, the challenging yet manageable pace is bogged down with additional (perceived unnecessary) impediments to getting the job
