The old-school DevOps model, where the security team works in a silo, separated from agile development teams, introduces a lot of tensions. With such an organization, developers often perceive security analysts as the “bad cops” who make their life difficult. On the other hand, security analysts who do not participate in agile practices, have a tendency to become too elitist.

This is one of the reasons why we at Acunetix strongly believe that DevSecOps is the way to go, not only for large enterprises but also for small and medium organizations. Smaller businesses will benefit from efficient teamwork as much as enterprises if not more. This is especially important in the case of startups, which rely much more on good communication and the full usage of human potential.

As part of our efforts to promote DevSecOps, we have prepared a short visual presentation of the benefits that you can expect to gain if you decide to improve your SDLC with Acunetix, focusing on the human factor. Download and see if any of these problems and solutions apply to your organization.
