Why do DevOps need Security?


All as good as new products are increasingly immatrieller kind, whose features are digital and ever more short-lived. The expectations of digital customers and the race for innovation call for agile and actionable Company. Thus, your overriding goal is to develop a process that delivers the desired value quickly, agile and secure. This process increases delivery rates, volumes, and accuracy without quality losses or higher costs. Safety is particularly important, as the Deliveries must always be checked. The number of security vulnerabilities has increased in recent years by has risen by almost 50 percent. 47 percent of those surveyed say at the same time that security teams or policies are an insurmountable obstacle to their processes.

DevOps


With DevOps, the quality of the software, the speed of development and deployment as well as the The cooperation between the teams involved and the customer can be improved. In the world of enterprise software DevOps is an instrument for the organizational transformation of isolated, traditionally opposing groups into collaborative teams with shared resources, a common goal and collective responsibility. These structure makes it possible and therefore more effective to compete on the market.

DevOps-Security


In such an environment, classical security approaches are not suitable due to the rapidly changing functions in of the software is not particularly good, because current security analyses are usually point images. It becomes trust into the security systems if an agile system is present. All security-relevant and not security-relevant data must be accessible to all stakeholders involved with the DevOps security process in connection, since every commit goes directly into production.


If someone checks in a commit that has a negative impact on other functions, it will be rejected by all Stakeholders, as all data has been democratised and is available to all. Emergency patches are not necessary as bugs will be fixed with the next commits. For these iterations the developers need a different way of thinking than with traditional methods.


For this process the collection of data is essential objective, because the decision making and evaluation of Security analyses require a sound data basis.

Our goal is to automatically integrate security controls into the current cycle, so that they are transparent, transparent and easy to use. as possible and do not require manual configuration. This goal is achieved with automated security controls within DevOps toolchains. The automation also reduces the risk of of maladministration, malfunctions, unexpected downtime and successful security attacks. A high degree of automation eliminates the need for manual configuration of a safety system, thus ensuring a high level of safety. level of agility can be guaranteed. All the functions of the security platform, such as identity and access management (IAM), firewalling, vulnerability scanning, application security testing - are programmatically exposed. The integration and automation of these security controls are ensured during the entire DevOps life cycle possible. The information security defines the guidelines, which then, depending on the type of the workload can be applied programmatically. Many solution providers are equipped with the ability to program-controlled unwinding in the backlog and require manual handling.

We are aware of the importance of early, fast and frequent releases.

The developers need a leap of faith for this process.

data-driven process

Our role in the process


The common AST security process in DevOps or NoOps environments is described in the following diagram. The security consultant initially implements the security process in the CI/CD pipeline, after which he is only active as a consultant. He supports the developers with tooling and with complex incidents.
