Automating Security Testing with Valtira’s DevSecOps Team

In today’s fast-paced digital landscape, maintaining robust security for your software applications is not just desirable, it is essential. The world is increasingly data-driven and connected, making security flaws and vulnerabilities a significant risk for companies worldwide. This situation has led to the advent and adoption of DevSecOps, a new approach to software development that integrates security protocols throughout the development lifecycle. At the forefront of this revolutionary wave, you’ll find the DevSecOps team at Valtira, a leading name in the cybersecurity industry.

The Paradigm Shift: From Manual to Automated Security Testing

Traditionally, security testing in the development process has been a manual and time-consuming affair, often implemented as a final step before product deployment. This approach, however, leaves room for potential oversights and vulnerabilities, not to mention it’s not scalable for continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) environments.

The shift toward DevSecOps and automated security testing is designed to address these issues. Automated security testing leverages advanced technologies to perform security checks throughout the development process, identifying and fixing potential security issues before the product reaches the deployment stage.

Role of DevSecOps in Automated Security Testing

DevSecOps, a culture shift in the DevOps world, is about embedding security at every step of the development process. It’s the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications at high velocity, evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes.

The team at Valtira brings DevSecOps to life, fostering a culture of shared responsibility for security. They promote seamless collaboration between development, security, and operations teams to ensure that security checks are integrated at every stage of the software development lifecycle.
