Manage and Secure Your Public Cloud to Ensure Organization-Wide Adoption of Best Practices
DevSecOps, short for development, security, and operations, is the principle of making everyone in your enterprise accountable for security by implementing security decisions and actions at the same scale and speed as development and operations decisions and actions. Enterprise organizations with a DevOps framework should be looking to shift left towards a DevSecOps mindset to bring security into the software development lifecycle earlier. This means training and educating individuals of all abilities and across all technology disciplines to a higher level of proficiency in security. From testing for potential security exploits to building business-driven applications, a DevSecOps framework that uses DevSecOps tools ensures security is built into its operations, applications, and development rather than being added as an afterthought. By ensuring that security is present during every stage of the software delivery lifecycle, you can experience continuous integration where the cost of compliance is reduced and software is released faster with less risk.
The way you build technology value has changed from stem to stern. We have gone from monolithic applications to microservices; Waterfall to Agile IT to DevOps; Data Centers to Cloud. The shift to agile cloud computing platforms shared storage and data, and dynamic applications have brought huge benefits to enterprises looking to thrive and grow through the use of advanced applications and services. However, while DevOps applications have stormed ahead in terms of speed, scale, and functionality, they are often lacking in robust security and compliance. For this reason, DevSecOps was introduced into the software development lifecycle to bring development, operations, and security together under one function.
Making security an equal consideration alongside development and operations significantly reduces the risk for any enterprise involved in application development in the public cloud. When you integrate DevSecOps and DevOps, every developer and administrator has security at the front of their mind when developing and deploying applications in the cloud. Security is now a core component of the software development workflow, rather than retrofitting it later during the cycle. By shifting left, DevSecOps provides enhanced automation throughout the software delivery pipeline, eliminates mistakes and reduces risk and downtime, and allows better integration of security into the DevOps framework.
As the keepers of security, DevSecOps is constantly making security decisions for code, applications, and data safely at the necessary speed and scale of the cloud. This requires enforcing policies, processes, and governance that reduce risk and keep data secure, while avoiding becoming a bottleneck to innovation.
As DevSecOps, you must constantly work to put security at the forefront of adopting, securing, and governing the cloud, or you risk slowing down the entire CI/CD operation. In the CI/CD model, releases tend to occur a lot more frequently with new revisions daily. Waiting until the very last minute to ensure that the application is safe and secure to deploy destroys the entire process and potentially could derail the delivery of the application altogether. What could have been a few weeks, might end up being a few months of development, testing and integration.
Older security models just cannot keep up. DevSecOps is a critical component in markets where software updates already are performed multiple times a day. Some may argue that the “security” piece is nothing more than a mindset or philosophy. Even if that were the case, a large part of the challenge is identifying risks early on and using the right tools to guide you through the entire CI/CD process. In this new cloud world, identity is the perimeter and this new perimeter requires the right tools. With 1000s of human and non-human identities in an average cloud environment, it is absolutely necessary to know and manage the risks to your identities and the way they interact with data, to keep your organization secure. Sonrai Security can help enterprises by integrating into CI/CD operations and by reducing risks across all of AWS, Azure, GCP, and Kubernetes environments.
A Platform Designed with Input from DevSecOps Professionals, Like You
Our experience working with DevSecOps from Fortune 500 customers to cloud native start-ups have resulted in a platform that solves the most complex cloud security challenge: ensuring that risk is effectively managed while enabling continued innovation and agility.
The Governance Automation Engine for Sonrai Dig is re-inventing how customers ensure security in AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and Kubernetes by automatically eliminating identity risks and reducing unwanted access to data. Our Governance Automation Engine helps enterprises address critical pain points including security breaches caused by identity policy misconfiguration and data risks that go beyond S3 buckets. It extends to include databases like Amazon RDS, DynamoDB, CosmosDB and many others, addressing disconnects among cloud, security, audit and DevOps teams with widely disparate cloud security toolsets.
Integrate security and compliance checks into CI/CD pipelines to increase deployment speed and validate compliance earlier in the SDLC
Manage your identities by preventing over permissions that enable actions that are far greater than the intended purpose
Misconfigurations are often seen as an easy target. Enforce your cloud security guardrails to prevent configuration issues
Prevent changes to that may occur in your cloud environment post-provisioning by analyzing infrastructure drift events and preventing or remediating them
Continuously scan across your clouds to identify where your critical data is and what type of data it is
Identity and data access complexity are exploding in your public cloud. Tens of thousands of pieces of compute, thousands of roles, and a dizzying array of interdependencies and inheritances. First-generation security tools miss this as evidenced by so many breaches. Sonrai Dig de-risks your cloud by finding these holes, helping you fix them, and preventing those problems from occurring in the first place.
