DevSecOps is a software engineering culture and practice that merges development, security, and operations using automation. With the increased attack surface of microservice applications comes an increased need for security and compliance across organizations. Without DevSecOps, development teams hand off code to the security team for testing. If the security team finds an issue, the deployment is halted and the development team is notified of the issue. DevSecOps builds on the automation that DevOps does well. Automation and security gates are built into every step of the software development lifecycle greatly reducing mean time to release. Deliver better, more secure software faster.
