DevOps definition

In cybersecurity, DevOps refers to the principles and practices integrated throughout the whole field of cybersecurity. It includes aligning security processes with development and workflows to ensure that various security measures would be implemented throughout the entire software development lifespan, from the beginning of code creation to deployment. The DevOps approach enhances software development’s speed and quality and promotes collaboration between the development teams, operations, and security teams.

Common DevOps applications in cybersecurity:

Vulnerability management tools: Vulnerability scanning tools observe the systems and applications for known threats and vulnerabilities, thus helping organizations to identify security weaknesses before they can be exploited by various attacks.

Intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS): UDPS tools are responsible for network traffic monitoring. If a suspicious activity is detected and identified, IDPS mitigates the potential cyber threats and attacks in real time.

Security information and event management (SIEM): SIEM solutions analyze the collected security information from various sources to provide insights into potential security incidents and breaches. This helps to detect data breaches and responds accordingly.
