Is Digital Transformation Driving the Need for DevSecOps?

December 3, 2020 | 3:00pm GMT

 Hosted by

A recent survey showed digital transformation is the biggest risk factor for senior executives. The automation of traditional IT processes enables greater efficiencies, secure software development and a sustainable competitive advantage.

There are over 20 million developers working for enterprise organisations across the globe. The universal desire for faster innovation and digital transformation has led to DevOps empowered developers demanding efficient reuse of code, which in turn has led to a growing dependence on open source and third-party software libraries. This velocity means applications are developed faster but it also introduces new security risks.

A secure foundation for software innovation is the ultimate source of competitiveness and value creation for almost every type of business. As a result, three things are increasingly common among corporate software engineering teams and the 20 million software developers that work for them:

  • They seek faster innovation
  • They seek improved security
  • They utilise a massive volume of open source libraries

Join Sonatype, Barrier Networks and other Senior IT Decision Makers as we discuss how the modern software supply chain and the drive for digital innovation is putting organisations at risk. And whether it is time to empower every developer to be a DevSecOps expert.
