DevOps gained widespread adoption because it achieved what every organization wants: Faster time-to-market thanks to more frequent release cycles. It eliminated the barrier between development and operations, either through tight collaboration or shared responsibilities.
As the practice is reaching organizations with strict security and compliance requirements, a new challenge emerged: Mitigating the risk of fast-moving DevOps teams accidentally introducing security vulnerabilities into production, without slowing them down.
DevSecOps emerged as the practice of integrating security directly into the DevOps process. The goal is to mitigate security risks without slowing down software release cycles.
How to Implement DevSecOps with Datree
The Datree DevSecOps solution makes it possible to foster collaboration between security and DevOps, and to get the benefits of DevSecOps without restructuring teams, changing workflows, or retooling. Here’s how:
1. Set and enforce policies without changing workflows.
Connect Datree to GitHub and start enforcing policies in minutes. Control which policies to enforce and where, from one place. Policy compliance tests run in GitHub on every code change (pull request), where developers can see and act on them before merging.
2. Help engineers understand and fix security issues.
If a code change doesn’t comply with policy, the developer is shown an explanation and instructions for fixing the root cause, directly in GitHub. They can also view actionable reports in GitHub to better understand security risks within their repositories.
3. See security risks within the organization’s code repositories.
The Datree real-time code catalog provides complete visibility into what’s inside your code—services, packages, open-source libraries, and tools. Spot unsafe practices early, and be notified when new tools are introduced into the organization.
