How to effeciently use the power of DevOps
DevOps is not a technology, but there are different tools used in DevOps environments. These include continuous integration and continuous delivery or continuous deployment tools. Other products to support DevOps include real time monitoring and immediate response systems. DevOps is supposed to be faster, more efficient and more reliable than more traditional software engineering methodologies. In DevOps, processes are based on infrastructure as code, teams can automate the provision and management of resources.
DevOps pushes and modifies batches of code over very short time frames, which may far improve the speed at which security teams can keep up with code review. If security measures such as code analysis, configuration checks, vulnerability scanning are not adequately automated, the DevOps output will either be dramatically slowed or lack proper security measure. Normally this could include insecure code, vulnerabilities, misconfiguration, hardcoded passwords and other weakness in application security that can be exploited by attackers or contribute to operational disfunction, including downtime.
