Security operations (SecOps) is an emerging practice in IT service management (ITSM) that bridges gaps between operations and security teams. The ultimate goal of SecOps is to create shared ownership and responsibility for a secure delivery process, eliminating barriers in communication and bureaucratic red tape.
SecOps takes a place within the larger framework of DevSecOps—an approach that completely integrates security into the development operations (DevOps) process. This brings fresh thinking to processes that can are almost stiflingly complex. It has emerged in response to the bottlenecks typical in older security models and their impact on continuous delivery cycles.
Achieving DevSecOps for Agile Teams
Today’s market calls for the flexibility to change software rapidly -- sometimes several times per day—in response to customers’ needs. Agile development teams have adapted to this demand. However, old security models, poorly suited to rapid delivery cycles, can quickly derail agile release cycles and throw a wrench in the works for an organization’s evolving software products.
Security must be integrated into the DevOps cycle.
For an integrated DevSecOps process to take hold, security must be a fundamental part of every stage. That means it must take on efficiencies afforded by automation and streamlined analysis.
In this report, Sumo Logic commissioned IT consulting and analysis firm Enterprise Management Associates to provide detailed guidance on how to prepare for integration of security processes within a DevSecOps framework. Download the report and learn how you can get started today.
