What Are DevSecTools and DevSecOps?
Developers building applications must think holistically about how security principles are applied through the software delivery lifecycle. DevSecOps, which stands for development, security, and operations, integrates security concepts into the development and delivery of applications. This end-to-end approach applies tools, education, policies, and practices at every stage to enable secure applications.
An important part of this approach is to integrate tooling and automation early in the lifecycle, also known as a “shift-left” mindset, without impacting delivery speed. Frequent security testing and scanning is a task expected from a DevOps-oriented team, leading to faster remediation of flaws and errors, a task greatly facilitated by the appropriate DevSecTools.
