This blog post is an excerpt from our new report, Integrating Security From End to End With DevSecOps, download the full version here.

At its core, DevSecOps is “a cultural and engineering practice that breaks down barriers and opens collaboration between development, security and operations organizations using automation,” according to the General Services Administration’s definition. The focus is on rapid, frequent delivery of secure infrastructure and software to production, which a growing number of agencies are prioritizing.

The purpose and intent of DevSecOps is to build on the mindset that everyone is responsible for security with the goal of safely distributing security decisions at speed and scale.

“Something that helped the adoption of DevSecOps was to increase collaboration to create an environment of sharing.”

– Darryl Peek, Director of Digital, Innovation and Solutions, Department of Homeland Security
