As a field, DevSecOps is a rapidly evolving. Through the combination of software development, security, and operations organizations are able to deliver secure and reliable software at a faster pace. But with cybersecurity risks remaining as a top concern, what are the key trends that are expected to shape the future of DevSecOps in 2023?
1. Enterprises shift focus to automation
As organizations continue to adopt agile and DevOps practices, there is a growing need for automated tools and processes to support these approaches. This includes everything from automated testing and deployment, to automated security checks and vulnerability management. By automating many of the time-consuming tasks associated with software development and security, organizations can significantly improve their speed and efficiency, while also reducing the risk of errors and security vulnerabilities.
2. Prominence of container orchestration
Containers allow developers to package their applications and dependencies into a single, portable unit that can be easily deployed across different environments. This makes it easier to develop and deploy software, as well as scale applications up or down as needed. Container orchestration tools such as Kubernetes and Docker Swarm enable organizations to manage and deploy large numbers of containers across multiple hosts, providing an additional layer of automation.
3. Growing use of cloud-native technologies
Cloud-native technologies such as microservices and serverless architectures allow organizations to build and deploy software quickly and efficiently, making it easier to scale applications and services on demand. Such technologies enable organizations to take advantage of the many benefits of the cloud, including reduced costs, increased agility, and improved reliability.
4. Security is on everyone’s mind
2023 will see the growing use of machine learning and AI (Artificial Intelligence) to detect and respond to security threats in real-time, as well as automate many of the manual processes associated with security. This enables organizations to protect their systems and data, and respond faster to security incidents.
5. Adopting security-as-code approaches
Security-as-code involves embedding security checks and controls directly into the software development process. This allows organizations to build security into their software from the start, rather than trying to bolt it on later. By adopting security-as-code approaches, organizations can improve the security of their software and reduce the risk of vulnerabilities.
6. The continued evolution of ‘DevSecOps’
As more organizations adopt agile and DevOps practices, and as the importance of software security continues to grow, DevSecOps will continue to evolve and mature. This will involve the development of new tools, processes, and best practices to support the integration of security into the software development process.
DevSecOps is a rapidly evolving field that is likely to see significant changes in 2023. By staying up-to-date with these trends, organizations can better position themselves to deliver secure and reliable software, at speed and scale.
