ESG Brief: The Expanding Role of DevSecOps Practices
ESG Brief

Jan 24, 2020
ESG conducted research in the fall of 2019 to examine the composition of cloud-native applications, explore the challenges associated with securing cloud-native environments, and gauge the emergence of secure DevOps programs, or “DevSecOps,” as a methodology to protect the lifecycle of modern applications. The number of organizations who have or plan to implement secure DevOps practices has grown appreciably since ESG’s similar study in 2017, leading to an expanded set of use cases and, over time, broader coverage of an organization’s footprint of cloud-native applications. DevSecOps, for the purposes of this ESG brief, is the automation of security via the integration of cybersecurity controls and processes in the continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline of DevOps.
