Organizations are embracing DevOps to support extremely rapid release cycles and meet the demands of digital transformation. But without incorporating AppSec testing into DevOps processes and releasing insecure software into production, these organization are putting themselves at considerable risk. Yet, integrating and orchestrating AppSec tools within DevOps pipelines is a complex, extremely time-consuming task often left up to developers whose mandate is to produce quality software within very tight timeframes, not figure out security.

In this webinar,  ZeroNorth’s DevSecOps Evangelist Dan Beauregard (DevOps expert) & Solution Architect Patrick Hayes (security expert) will dig into some of the technical challenges around integrating AppSec within DevOps pipelines. They will discuss a new approach that can help organizations easily ramp up their AppSec program while making AppSec transparent and friction free for developers.

The webinar will cover how to:

  • Remove the complexity around connecting, configuring and maintaining application security tools within DevOps pipelines
  • Empower developers by giving them the flexibility to choose their AppSec tools
  • Make AppSec an integral part of the DevOps process —not separate from it
  • Eliminate the security friction points between security and development teams that impact pipeline velocity
