Modern software delivery is synonymous with DevSecOps.
Embrace a DevOps culture that embraces security, and let Fortify be your guide in navigating the complex landscape of modern software development, ensuring that your innovations remain secure, compliant, and resilient throughout their lifecycle.
Modern software delivery is synonymous with DevSecOps. Moving beyond early adopters to the mainstream has driven the evolution beyond just integration and automation. Security must keep pace with the 'everything-as-code' era to transition from point of friction to enablement, without sacrificing quality. Learn more about DevSecOps from our Fortify team!
Challenges Adopting DevSecOps
1 Ability to "Shift Left"
Shifting left is essential to increasing developer productivity and building security in from the start. This means security tools must seamlessly integrate into existing developer workflows and tool chains for fast, accurate, and actionable feedback to accelerate and simplify remediation and triage.
“Security practices and tooling must be adapted to the needs of development teams as well as the development environments, languages, and frameworks that these teams use”

2 Automating the Sec in DevSecOps
Automation is the biggest drivers empowering shift-left security. This is backed up by studies showing that companies who use automation are twice as likely to implement security testing. While many organizations know there is a need for automation, and some automation has taken place, there is still more room for improvement.

While many organizations know there is a need for automation, and some automation has taken place, there is still more room for improvement. Gartner states that while 95% of respondents use automation, only 33% fully automate their deployment pipeline. Furthermore Gartner indicates that 32% of organizations manually integrate their security tools*.

3 Securing Outsourced, 3rd Party and Open-Source Code
In recent years, the severity and frequency of software supply chain attacks have increased significantly. Utilizing open-source components to accelerate the development process has proven to have great advantages, which is why a staggering 98% of all code bases rely on them. However, supply chains have many blind spots or cracks that attackers can take advantage of.
