DevSecOps for FinTech: How it Accelerates Your SDLC?
DevSecOps represents a paradigm shift in software product development, seamlessly integrating security into the development process.
It ensures that security is not an afterthought, but rather an integral part of the entire software development lifecycle within the dynamic FinTech ecosystem.
In DevOps, the security tests are performed after the end of the CI/CD pipeline.
These security tests take hours, days, or sometimes weeks if the system is too complex.
The security team may find thousands of vulnerabilities and issues and send them to the development team to fix in the new version.
However, because of the efficient DevOps cycle, a couple of versions have been created, which are already in the queue for the security audits.
Now, you can see the problem here.
You have the super-optimized DevOps process that you have built and are proud of.
But right before the audit, the security checks and audits block the whole process, delaying the release for weeks.
So, how to fix the problem? By integrating security in DevOps!
In other words, start thinking about security audits at the beginning and address issues as soon as they arise rather than worrying about them after new features are developed and tested just before being released.
