Application Security and DevOps

What is the true state of security in DevOps?

Rapid application delivery is dramatically transforming how software is created and delivered, pushing the limits on the speed and innovation required of development teams.

With the rise of DevOps, there is a new opportunity to improve the software development lifecycle (SDLC) in tandem with the moves being made toward agility and continuous delivery, but making the transition securely is not automatic.

The HPE Security Fortify team surveyed a wide range of industry leaders, security practitioners, and developers to:

  • Determine where organizations are in their transition to DevOps.
  • Gauge how security efforts are included in those efforts.
  • Identify the obstacles and opportunities in improving security practices in a DevOps environment.

The results provide insight into current DevOps security practices at both large and mid-size enterprises, and highlight multiple gaps that still exist between the opportunity to have security as a natural part of DevOps and the reality of current implementations.

Key findings include:

  • Everybody believes that security should be an integral part of DevOps and that their DevOps transformations will actually make them more secure.

  • However, very few DevOps programs actually have included security as part of the process since it’s a much lower priority than speed and innovation.

  • This problem persists and could worsen in DevOps environments because silos still exist between development and security.
