More and more companies are moving their work to the cloud. The “cloud first” strategy is becoming a more common choice, and for some the idea about on-premises and hybrid is not even an option. So how can operations, security and development apply a consistent approach to secure the infrastructure and do it efficiently?
DevOps vs. DevSecOps does not exist. The two don’t contradict, they are simply one generation apart.
When concepts like DevOps and Cloud computing come together, this powerful combination propels organizational growth at a rapid speed.
While DevOps is a more process-oriented concept, the cloud acts as a catalyst to pace up the process. One of the first objectives to secure your cloud is to start by limiting unauthorized access.
Public dloud can help meet certain compliance standards easier, programs like PCI, ISO and HIPAA are already managed by many cloud providers.
Cloud solutions is about sharing, sharing the responsibility but mostly sharing services. We know that your IT security team is top-notch. But the reality is that massive cloud service providers like Amazon, Microsoft, and Google have many more resources to address infrastructure and security. By using cloud solutions these tools and resources are made available to you as a customer, and almost for free. It is up to you to start laying your blocks on top of it and use the right tool for the job.
