Using SecDevOps best practices, and tools such as the Secure DevOps Kit for Azure, we can help you bake security into your development and deployment processes from the very beginning.
The ultimate goal is creating a DevOps culture and a growth mindset within your organisation. The DevOps culture is about sharing responsibility and increasing collaboration across and within business and technology teams.
Infrastructure as Code
Cloud resources can be defined and managed in much the same way as code. This enables version control of system resources and results in consistent and repeatable environments across development, testing, and production.
Security & Continuous Monitoring
Security and monitoring should be baked into all environments from the start, allowing teams to create actionable alerts to identify and resolve issues in real time.
Continuous Integration & Delivery (CI/CD)
CI/CD is the practice of frequently building and deploying code by automating many stages of the software lifecycle, including development, testing, and deployment. Frequent, smaller deployments are less risky and enables true agility.
Configuration management is used in conjunction with infrastructure as code to specify and track state and configuration between environments.
Managing code and infrastructure in versions is essential to the DevOps process. Tools such as Git allow teams to collaborate and easily merge and rollback changes as necessary.
