Traditionally, security was often an afterthought in the software development process. The security measures were implemented late in the cycle or even after deployment. DevSecOps aims to shift security to the left. In DevSecOps, security is incorporated from the earliest stages of development and remains an integral part of the entire process.
The goal of DevSecOps is to create a culture where security is treated as everyone’s responsibility rather than solely the responsibility of security teams. It encourages developers, operations personnel, and security professionals to work together, collaborate and automate security processes.
