Reducing Security Risks with DevOps Practices

In 2018, the average enterprise paid $1.23 million per data breach, an increase of 24% from 2017. The leading cause of data breaches stem from error-prone manual processes that result from siloed security and IT Operations teams. Today, organizations are faced with lengthy processes to identify, prioritize and remediate security vulnerabilities, which ultimately can cost organizations not only millions in dollars but irreparable damage to their company brand. Integrating security throughout the software development cycle improves collaborations between security and IT Operations teams and ensures that security concerns are addressed early, as opposed to bolted on at the end of the cycles. We know from our State of DevOps research that high performers spend 50 percent less time remediating security issues than low performers and they do this by integrating security early in the development lifecycle and automating manual processes. Join us to learn how Puppet is integrating security into the DevOps space.
