A recent IDG survey commissioned by Chef Software found that:
59% of respondents believe integrating security into the software development lifecycle (SDLC) is crucial for their organization’s success
Nearly 9 out of 10 DevSecOps adopters found security to speed up – or at worst have no impact on – software delivery
60% of organizations believe that adopting DevSecOps reduces the risk of breaches
So adopting DevSecOps practices is a critical step for organizations to speed up their software delivery while reducing their risks.
Everything as Code
DevSecOps entails a close collaboration between Development, Security, and Operations to integrate best practices into the software delivery process, including embedding automated security and compliance testing in the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
One barrier to collaboration among operations, development and security across the SDLC is that these professionals all have their own language and corporate culture. Fortunately, Code serves as a common source of truth, shared as a common language among the teams and can be used to codify infrastructure configuration, security and compliance.
Chef Effortless Infrastructure Suite
Chef Effortless Infrastructure Suite (EIS) offers visibility into security and compliance status across all infrastructure and makes it easy to detect and correct issues long before they reach production. Chef EIS translates infrastructure configuration and compliance policies as code helping organizations streamline the security into their DevSecOps Practices.
Chef EIS delivers a differentiated compliance and security solution in its ability to detect any deviations from the desired state and provide remediation resources to automatically bring that system back into a secure and compliant state. Chef EIS provides enhanced out of the box security and compliance content, such as CIS_Center for Internet Security and STIG_Security Technical Implementation Guide profiles. This premium content can easily be customized to incorporate enterprise-specific compliance or security policies.
With this integrated Detect and Correct capability, Chef EIS delivers DevSecOps automation to help organizations move faster while reducing risk.
