- Overview

DevSecOps (development, security, and operations) is a software development (and cultural) approach that embeds security into every stage of the DevOps pipeline.

As organizations face an increasing number of threats and the highest cost of data breaches on record, security remains a top priority. This creates pressure to ensure that software used internally and by end users is secure by design. As a result, in a recent study, nearly 80 percent of the organizations surveyed had begun applying DevSecOps on at least one of their teams to improve security and agility. 

Similar to DevSecOps, the shift-left concept in software development is to embed security into every stage of development, rather than leaving it at the end of the development cycle. Moving to the left means that the code is designed to be safe, not safe. Shifting left is both a mindset shift and adoption of tools to detect security failures and vulnerabilities in software, dependencies, and runtime environments, databases, or APIs.
