WASHINGTON, DC — ATIS today announced publication of Collaborative DevSecOps in a Service Provider Environment, a report that explores the unique challenges of improving security in a cloud native environment for ICT services and also provides best practices for creating and maintaining a secure environment.
To better manage the complexity of delivering services using large, integrated multi-component, multi-vendor systems, telecom service providers are migrating their software development, deployment and lifecycle environments to a cloud-native architecture. This trend dovetails with the use of DevOps for continuous delivery models and automation of system management. In the cloud-native DevOps model, development and operations teams are no longer siloed. They are merged into a collaborative team where the engineers work across the entire application lifecycle, from architecture, design, development and test to deployment and ongoing operations.
With security expertise and responsibilities tightly integrated within the DevOps processes, the result is DevSecOps. Together, cloud-native and DevOps/DevSecOps enable the creation of loosely coupled systems that are scalable, resilient, manageable, observable and secure.
“Recent high profile supply chain security events point to the need for advancing cloud-based security practices,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller, “This new ATIS report is at the forefront as an industry effort enabling service providers to better manage complex collaborative cloud-based network software deployments while maintaining high levels of security.”
