We’re now seeing a new “marriage” of SecOps and DevOps that is creating a whole new mentality for driving innovation inside and outside of organizations. DevOps and security teams are now actively collaborating as peers, rather than in the traditional requestor/approver relationship, and making a seat at the table for security professionals. With the rise of DevSecOps, we get to truly redefine how operations, engineering, and security can be brought together in harmony to achieve unparalleled success. DevSecOps is propelling forward-thinking organizations by doing something simple — fostering collaboration of seemingly contradictory teams to align their disparate goals into a singular effort.
