Combining Development (Dev), Security (Sec) and Operations (Ops) together, implementing best practices, and through the use of tools to automate software thought to assimilation processes, DevSecOps provides the fundamentals to enable a company to develop, deliver, and improve applications in parallel to the business needs.
DevSecOps is part of a larger trend of moving development and operations to the cloud. It is a natural and necessary response to the bottleneck effect of older infrastructure architectures and security models on the modern continuous delivery pipeline.
The goal is to bridge traditional gaps between IT, operations and security while ensuring fast, safe delivery of code. Two seemingly opposing goals — “speed of delivery” and “secure code”—are merged into one streamlined process.
The two main benefits of DevSecOps are speed and security. Development teams deliver better, more-secure code faster, and, therefore, cheaper. Microservice architecture acts as a boost for speed of DevSecOps enabled applications development. As the microservices are independent and loosely coupled, the development becomes a little easier for developers using the DevSecOps strategy.
A robust underlying platform is essential for the success of Microservices and building this platform is time and resource intensive while managing such platform require huge recurring investment.
Algonym brings in DevSecOps-ready tools and services to enable secure continuous delivery, integrated security testing, and cloud native delivery pipelines making it possible to Go-Live with your Microservice Applications within few hours, instead of months.
