Enterprise DevSecOps: Security’s Role In DevOps

Source:- securityboulevard.com As mentioned in an earlier section, DevOps is not all about tools and technology, but much of its success is how people work within this model.

A proper DevOps feedback loop includes business leaders

Source – techtarget.com DevOps streamlines development, testing and operations processes, but it relies on strong feedback loops to complete useful work. Without feedback from start to finish, DevOps is no more useful for a business than waterfall. DevOps can support continuous development and delivery models, which break up work into tiny pieces small enough to deal with efficiently and in real time to prevent problems from becoming bottlenecks. It’s a step up from waterfall, where processes add significant time to project completion in the

3 steps to secure, open source DevOps

Source – opensource.com Nobody really writes their own code anymore, right? We go out to GitHub, download some libraries, avoid recreating unnecessary wheels, and package those wheels together along with our own glue to create new software. Then we download a half dozen front-end frameworks to make it all pretty and responsive and we’re off the races. In my review of apps, both in my company and others, I’ve found that more than 90% of the code that makes up an

Advantages of Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) over Static and Dynamic Testing

Source – contrastsecurity.com Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST) works in fundamentally different ways than static or dynamic tools using instrumentation technology. IAST leverages information from inside the running application, including runtime requests, data flow, control flow, libraries, and connections, to find vulnerabilities accurately. Because of this, interactive testing works better for application security. That’s why we created Contrast — to utilize next-generation technology to solve the growing problems inside the application security field. Because of this, interactive testing works better for application security. That’s

Three Lessons From Test-Driven Development

Source:- securityintelligence.com In 1999, Kent Beck’s “Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change,” became an inspiration for rethinking the way software was developed. Three years later, his “Test-Driven Development: By Example” further elaborated on the need to reconsider the way software is planned, how teams operate and, most importantly, the way software is tested. To date, there are over 170 books on Amazon about test-driven development (TDD). For readers curious about the origins and evolution of the concept, the Agile Alliance posted
