DevSecOps – Security as a continuous matter

In the traditional approach to software development, security was often relegated as a final step, typically handled by a dedicated security department or outsourced to external vendors. This method, while standard, led to security considerations being somewhat isolated from the core development process. Security assessments were conducted at specific checkpoints, often resulting in the identification of vulnerabilities late in the development cycle when they were more challenging and costly to address.

However, the landscape of software development and security has undergone a significant transformation. In today’s fast-paced, continuously evolving digital environment, treating security as an afterthought is no longer viable. Security concerns need to be interwoven throughout the development process, not tacked on at the end. This shift in perspective and practice gave rise to the concept of DevSecOps.
