What is DevSecOps? Why It's So Crucial For Government Agencies
A decade ago, DevOps was new and groundbreaking in the tech space. DevOps is now the standard in tech. But for many government agencies, this isn't the case. So how do you catch up to the standard and even get ahead of the curve in one undertaking? Meet DevSecOps, an evolution beyond DevOps that emphasizes security at each step of development.Read More
The Culture Change Necessary to Truly Adopt a DevSecOps Approach
Change, no matter how it arrives, is never easy. For government agencies, it can be even harder. Systems, processes, and mindsets are more entrenched because of the extreme vetting that goes into inputting these frameworks. The same goes for adopting a DevSecOps approach to your software tech systems.Read More
A DevSecOps Approach to Cloud Transition
Application transition is the most challenging and risky aspect of migrating an organization to the cloud. At Geocent, we created a process for application cloud transition that is based on the Development Security Operations (DevSecOps) paradigm that focuses on automation, infrastructure as a code, security, and configuration as a code.Read More
By adding security in your DevOps approach, your system will automatically detect vulnerabilities and build a new environment with the necessary updates. It will then redeploy without anyone having to touch a button.
Once you build the system environment once, it’s easily replicable. That means you never have to start from scratch again. And if your agency experiences any issues with the software, it can automatically go back to the stable environment while the problem is fixed.
Traditional software techniques use a Continuous Implementation, Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) technique that holds up deployment until security is checked. With a DevSecOps approach, security is baked in. You can automate deployment to cut down on time and cost.
Isn’t the goal of every government agency to be more agile while cutting costs? Modernizing your legacy systems with a DevSecOps approach does just that. Software can be built, deployed, and updated automatically, saving your agency manpower while working more efficiently.
