In 2018, nearly 76% of organizations experienced a cyber-attack or data breach due to a compromised application. The speed with which software today is developed means that security defects in the code are a fact. Traditional security tests carried out by external security teams at the end of development don’t work to protect against attack. By the time the bug is found, the development team is already working on the next iteration. To provide fast feedback from a security point of view, security tests must be treated the same as functional tests. Application Security Testing tools should be integrated into the SDLC, to support development teams with Continuous Security Testing. DevSecOps takes up the idea of DevOps and adds the missing component, security.
