The transition from legacy software architectures and SDLC workflows to cloud native SaaS applications with CI/CD pipelines has cultivated an unprecedented change in enterprise IT development and security practices. Containerized images, Cloud VMs, orchestration platforms, and serverless functions are quickly becoming the standard among software ecosystems.
This complex landscape of technologies and workflows presents new challenges for security teams. Proper DevSecOps obliges organizations to manage vulnerabilities throughout CI/CD pipelines. To do so, security teams must have insight into the nature and severity of risks posed by these ’new’ technologies and a reliable methodology to control their software security risk posture.
- What artifacts are in your pipeline?
- Are there any vulnerabilities or hidden malware associated with them?
- Which risks do you prioritize for remediation, and how do you fix them?
- Do you have risk visibility once something has been pushed to production?
