DevOps is not just about teams employed in production and operations. When you want to take full advantage of the versatility and flexibility of a DevOps strategy, IT security always needs to play an integral part of the apps' complete life cycle.
In the past, the role of protection in the final stage of production was confined to a particular team. If production cycles lasted months or even years, it wasn't as troublesome, but those days are gone. Successful DevOps guarantees quick and regular cycles of growth (sometimes weeks or days), but obsolete safety practices will reverse even the most efficient DevOps initiatives.
Today security is a joint responsibility implemented from end to end in the DevOps collaboration process. It's a mentality that's so critical, it has led some to coin the word "DevSecOps" to underline the need to create a framework for protection in DevOps initiatives.
DevSecOps means thinking from the start about application and protection of the infrastructure. This also means some safety valves are programmed to prevent the DevOps process from slowing down. Selecting the right tools to continually incorporate security, such as agreeing with security features on an Integrated Development Environment ( IDE), will help achieve these goals. Good DevOps security, however, requires more than modern tools—it builds on DevOps' cultural improvements to sooner rather than later implement security team work.
