What is devsecops and why should your business care?

Source – techcentral.ie Although tacking on another three letters to the already heavily abbreviated ‘devops’ has the uncomfortable aura of word soup, ‘devsecops’ is a logical, essential continuation of the devops mindset.

When AI meets DevOps: Getting the best out of both worlds

Source – cloudcomputing-news.net DevOps has been widely embraced by businesses under pressure to get competitively advantageous digital deliverables to market at the fastest possible cadence—especially given the reality of limited coder headcount and the need to rigorously avoid brand-toxic snafus in the customer experience.

Speed and Security Can Coexist in Mainframe DevOps

The need to strike this critical balance has led to the rise of DevSecOps,

Rules automation puts the “Sec” in DevSecOps

Source – helpnetsecurity.com Imagine if safety were an afterthought in automobiles: Manufacturers would create a pristine new car and then hand it off to the safety team…which would bolt airbags onto the dashboard, seatbelts onto the side panels, and bumpers onto both ends. And if they were under a lot of pressure to get the car to dealers as quickly as possible, they might just leave off some of this stuff, ship the car to the dealer, and tell the safety
