DevSecOps is the philosophy which focuses on applying total security on each of the development phases, from coding to deployment.
By using DevSecOps, development companies ensure that every code release and every coding phase are free from vulnerabilities or risks as well as up to date on the latest security standards.
On the last years, DevSecOps has gained much popularity since the security requirements of software businesses have increased due to the continually changing risks on the cloud. Also, DevSecOps helps software businesses to involve Development teams into the security assurance for the final products, and not leaving this task to Operations teams only.
DevSecOps involves the automation of test cases, the implementation of CI/CD pipelines, the use of vulnerability scan tools such as Snyk and Sonarqube, among some other essential items which help you get the necessary security on your code at the same time that they add efficiency on your release process.
