One can make the argument that DevSecOps (development, security and operations) is important to every development project.
The reason: DevSecOps is a an approach that produces shorter development cycles, and shorter development cycles allow teams to respond to and fix problems faster, increase efficiency, test new features, and keep users happy.
Shorter development cycles also help to strengthen your team and improve their efficiency.
Another way of looking at it: DevSecOps is the new DevOps, only complete.
Since its inception, countless developers have adopted DevOps to speed up the software delivery process and increase communication between developers and IT Ops teams.
In today’s world, software development is holistic and iterative, making the siloed approach to security work contrary to the DevOps model, causing delays.
Applying security throughout the entire application lifecycle is the only way to properly secure an application.
However, analysts warn that switching to DevSecOps requires a mindset shift in several areas. Software engineers need to be on board with continuous updates.
For SaaS providers hosting applications in the cloud, having continuously updated software is critical.
DevOps without integrated security is no longer compatible with modern software development and deployment. In order to prioritize security throughout the entire app life cycle, DevOps has been transformed into this new model called DevSecOps.
