DevSecOps Program Advisory

Security teams, tooling, and practices are lagging behind systemic shifts in the world of DevOps. When software was released once or twice a year, traditional methodologies managed security efforts at the very end of the development cycle with one security team and then tested with a separate quality assurance team. More development teams have adopted Agile DevOps practices that aim to reduce software development cycles to weeks, or even days. Traditional security and test efforts can no longer scale to keep up with optimized software release schedules and have become the enemy of time to market (TTM) in the eyes of many.

Why a DevSecOps Approach Is Important
Data provided by a recent GitLab study confirms that organizations have not fully embraced a tighter focus on security in DevOps as vulnerabilities are still being found very late in the development lifecycle. Collaboration between security and development teams remains strained due to a lack of clear lines of responsibility and ownership regarding who should resolve security flaws.

Stratascale DevSecOps Program Advisory
Before the production phase, a clear DevSecOps program strategy is necessary to empower security and development teams to address security issues as they emerge when they’re easier, faster, and less expensive to fix. Our DevSecOps Program Advisory service allows us to work with you to design, develop, and implement a comprehensive program so you can easily automate the integration of security at every phase of your software development process—from initial design through integration, testing, deployment, and software delivery. Our structured approach allows our experts to:

Discover

  • Select applications for threat modeling
  • Schedule application discovery and risk review sessions
  • Discover existing application, data, and pipeline components

Assess

  • Perform threat modeling and risk analysis
  • Review existing CI/CD pipelines; DevSecOps practices; and existing toolsets and methodologies used for DevSecOps security controls

Deliver

  • Identify and incorporate DevSecOps best practices to support your key business objectives
  • Develop DevSecOps strategy and improvement roadmaps
  • Perform risk review and knowledge share (per DevOps team)

You Need to Adopt a DevSecOps Strategy That Will Allow You to Better Integrate Security Practices. We Can Help.

Are you ready to implement a true DevSecOps strategy that will help identify vulnerabilities much earlier in the development lifecycle and enable organic collaboration between your development and security teams? Contact us today to learn how easy it is to start your journey.
