DevSecOps

DevSecOps stands for development, security, and operations. It's a software development phrase that represent the process of automating security integrations into platform design. This appproach makes security a shared responsibility between a developer and security teams, instead of leaving it completely on the shoulders of the security team.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About DevSecOps

For a while, DevOps—which stands for development and operations—aimed to develop new software without thinking about the security of the software itself. As a result, security teams struggled to keep up with the fast pace that new software was being created and released. DevSecOps hopes to fix this by encouraging an SMB's development team to do security testing themselves and manage any issues found before passing the new software to the security team.
