Speed and Security Can Coexist in Mainframe DevOps

Source – devops.com DevOps teams face a constant tug-of-war in their daily work, balancing the need for speedy rollouts of high-performing (fast, reliable) applications that are secure also. If the team moves too quickly, an overlooked security vulnerability may make its way into production. If the team is not nimble enough to identify those security gaps, it can slow down the entire development process, hampering organizational agility. 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

Application security needs to shift left

Source – sdtimes.com As teams are pressured to release software more rapidly, more and more aspects of software development are being forced to “shift left,” moving up earlier in the development lifecycle. Because of the speed in which code is updated and delivered, security can no longer be thought of as an afterthought, said Rani Osnat, VP of product marketing at Aqua Security, a company that specializes in container security. “That’s why we profess to shift left security and basically embed

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. Artificial intelligence (AI), in stark contrast, is a potentially transformative digital discipline that is still very new to most enterprise IT organizations. But while it’s certainly important that CIOs nurture AI adoption with appropriately resourced pilots, it’s

What Comes after DevOps? Two Possibilities

Source – devops.com People have been talking about the “post-DevOps” world since at least 2014. But have we actually arrived in the post-DevOps era? If so, what comes after DevOps? Let’s explore those questions. The DevOps concept is more than a decade old. DevOps has seen widespread adoption across companies large and small. “DevOps engineer” is now a common job title for tech folks. At a minimum, these developments mean that DevOps is now very mature and mainstream. They may even signal the end of DevOps,

DevSecOps: Embedding a Security Practice into your DevOps Approach

Source – devops.com It’s a no-brainer that the element of security cannot be compromised even to the smallest of extents in today’s competitive, fast-paced, modern technology-driven IT infrastructure. However, to keep up with the rapid developments of other processes in this agile world, security is often given relatively less importance and in some cases, even left behind. As the term suggests, DevSecOps is primarily concerned with the incorporation of security in the DevOps pipeline. The intended primary function of DevSecOps is

DevOps requires a fresh approach to security

Source – itworldcanada.com DevOps originated from the need/desire to break down the silos between development and quality control. The need to be more agile, to continuously produce and deliver code in a quick, iterative approach, while maintaining quality. The developers became accountable for the quality of code that went into production. When practiced properly, agile development is an efficient approach that allows for constant upgrades and feature releases, while maintaining code quality. However, security has still remained a tack-on afterthought. Enter

Securing DevOps Without Undermining It

Source – itbusinessedge.com Everybody wants to do DevOps right, and part of that equation is making sure applications and services remain secure even as development and integration transition to a continuous workflow model. But chaos, even the controlled chaos of DevOps, poses a particular challenge to security. It opens up too many attack vectors and introduces too much uncertainty into what is now a very staid, stable data environment. When everything, even infrastructure, is defined and managed as code, security requires
