DevSecOps and DevOps are similar concepts with automation at their core. DevSecOps adds an additional layer to the DevOps process by integrating security earlier, into each step of the design process, and not just the final stage of the software development life cycle. This is the modern recipe for delivering a safe product, one without security issues. The goal is to break down the silos between development security and operations teams by injecting into everyone, a uniform security mindset.
A successful DevSecOps strategy involves the following phases:
These phases help the DevSecOps teams to run automated tests on the code with the shortest possible iteration. This protects the code against any new vulnerabilities.
