Move it left, all the way left – Application Security as strategy creates advantages

Security vulnerabilities in code are often seen as failures of the application development process since bugs that increase risk can make code undeployable. In contrast, security checks that slow application development directly oppose deployment velocity. There definitely is a quandary…

Three Kubernetes Challenges Facing Government Development Teams

In a recent series of articles on the GovDevSecOpsHub, we discussed Kubernetes and how it has become an integral part of the application development and deployment process for application development teams that work with or on behalf of the federal…

 

 

 

We launched GovDevSecOpsHub to focus on the next evolution of application development, DevSecOps, which brings cybersecurity teams and tools into the development process sooner so that applications are more secure and safeguarded against cyber threats.

In  GovDevSecOpsHub we’ll look at the evolution from traditional software and application development to the DevOps model. We’ll talk about the importance of moving from DevOps to DevSecOps. We’ll highlight the technologies and cultural changes necessary to make this shift happen. And we’ll profile government organizations and executives that are the “boots on the ground” as the government pivots towards the DevSecOps model.
