DevOps is now widely accepted in software development because, by introducing a culture of collaboration and cooperation between development and IT operations teams, it enables features to be released faster to end users.
Now, however, DevSecOps is entering the picture because it balances the need for companies to deploy changes to code more frequently with increasing demands for the same code to be secure. Gartner, for example, predicts that by 2021, DevSecOps practices will be embedded in 80% of rapid development teams, up from 15% in 2017.
But where does the database fit in? Can the same principles be followed, or should they be modified? How can increasing regulatory pressure around data privacy and protection be satisfied? What additional measures should be considered so that the security of data can be protected alongside the code and truly compliant Database DevOps is achieved?
This whitepaper details how and why DevOps can be applied to the database, and then outlines the steps necessary to include it in DevSecOps.
Redgate's Compliant Database DevOps solution gives you an end-to-end framework for extending DevOps to your database while complying with regulations and protecting your data.Find out more
