Traditional approaches to application security create unacceptable drag and scaling problems for DevOps, while security staffing and tooling requirements to support “more code, faster” creates untenable economics. This session will discuss the transformative impact of embedding application security into applications themselves. Embedded AppSec removes friction, enables security to be seamlessly woven into DevOps, and provides a continuous and unified approach across the SDLC that empowers Dev, Security, QA/Test, Ops, and other stakeholders to collaborate and realize the benefits of DevSecOps. A demonstration will be provided.
