For sustainability sake, every organization with a devops framework will have a DevSecOps mindset. Despite devops'' success as an effective software development methodology, DevSecOps comes in with a better strategy to ensure security throughout the software application development and operations lifecycle.
Historically, software development teams performed security checks only after the development process. This strategycan result in a large number of flaws and hazardous security applications. According to research, half of organizations knowingly release risky code due to deadline constraints. This resulted in flaws that both new application rollouts and obsolete program updates.
Before any difficulties become more evident, DevSecOps teams may respond early on by employing automated testing. This improves the end-user experience while also increasing the overall success of a development pipeline. From testing for potential security exploits to designing business-driven security services, a DevSecOps framework that employs advanced techniques to ensure security is integrated into applications from the start rather than being bolted on haphazardly.

AutoRabit to expand its DevSecOps Platform
AutoRabit, a DevSecOps platform provider, intends to expand and strengthen its security platform. This is what it intends to achieve with its newly secured $26 million in series B investment from its existing investor, Full In Partners.
AutoRabit is a trusted Salesforce DevSecOps platform provider for regulated industries and will transfer funds to the real security and development challenges faced by regulated companies using Salesforce. The financing comes during a time of increased demand for DevSecOps solutions, given the rise in cybersecurity threats and recommendations from the White House.
Salesforce encountered a data breach due to a malware infiltration on its network in 2019, putting a significant amount of consumer information at jeopardy, including credit card information and personal identifiers. The hackers downloaded data from tens of thousands of users across the United States and sold it on the dark web to criminals. It was the first entity to learn the breach nearly three months after the attack.
Maurizio de Franciscis, Managing Director and Head of Portfolio Success at Full In, claims that the AutoRabits DevSecOps platform is enabling Salesforce development teams in regulated industries to ship digital goods safely and quickly.
DevSecOps is not a yes or no choice. It''s important to realize that the DevSecOps process must be refined, upgraded, and reviewed regularly. Each iteration of DevSecOps is unique because the requirements of each development project differ.
According to Meredith Bell, the CEO of AutoRabit, this investment will enable us to offer even greater value to our customers through an improved set of DevSecOps tools.
Security must be placed as a primary concern for consumers, so they can continue to trust the apps they use. After all, consumers will only use the app if they are confident that their personal information is safe.
