As security thinkers try to wrap their heads around what’s broken in today’s security architecture and processes, DevOps and continuous delivery patterns may seem like yet another potential problem for already overwhelmed risk managers. But once security gurus get past the intimidation of working within a cycle of fast iterations, they could well find that continuous delivery model could actually provide a blueprint for fixing what’s wrong with security today.
Security leaders that work with operations, developers, architects, QA and the rest of the team to build continuous delivery momentum are helping their organizations develop a more rugged development life cycle that not only produces more secure software but that also supports faster fixes to security problems as they’re found.
Learn more about how to start moving toward a Rugged DevOps mentality in our inaugural eBook, Rugged DevOps: 10 Ways to Start Embedding Security into DevOps Patterns. Some of the insights security and DevOps experts shared with our reporter Ericka Chickowski in this special issue:
- The bad guys are already delivering malicious code continuously. Security can respond faster by working within the DevOps patterns.
- Security can a learn a lot from the DevOps propensity for smart automation.
- The DevOps model really can be compatible with compliance.
- The DevOps paradigm shift may give security pros the opportunity to finally bake security into IT processes rather than add it on as an afterthought.
