With the DevSecOps approach, security issues can be identified early in the software development process rather than after a product is released.
According to Gartner, DevSecOps is the integration of security into emerging agile IT and DevOps development as seamlessly and as transparently as possible. Ideally, this is done without reducing the agility or speed of developers or requiring them to leave their development toolchain environment.
DevSecOps is also the natural continuation of DevOps. With infrastructure becoming ever more complex in the cloud, it is critical than ever that DevOps embrace security from the outset. DevSecOps aims to solve the challenge of integrating security into the CI/CD pipeline by automating as many security tasks as possible, fostering communication between teams, and allowing an agile and secure development lifecycle.
