Making frequent changes to cloud applications running in production is the de-facto standard. To minimize errors, engineers use CI/CD automation, techniques like code reviews, green-blue deployments and others. Git pull requests often serve as a foundational component for triggering code reviews, Slack notifications, and subsequent automation such as testing and deployments. This automated process enforces peer reviews and creates enough visibility to minimize human error.
Integrating AST tools into your CI/CD pipeline shouldn’t compromise your development velocity. Learn how Intelligent Orchestration can help. Sometimes it feels like software development is at the crux of the collision between an unstoppable force and an immovable object. The answer to putting security in every phase of development is partly process and partly automating and integrating security testing into the build and test phases of development.
When it comes to productivity, agility, and efficiency - continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines are great. When it comes to ensuring cybersecurity, they leave a lot to be desired. In fact, and especially given the popularity of CI/CD pipelines now, securing continuous environments might turn into the most important security challenge of the next decade.
The benefits of application security (AppSec) tool integration in the continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline are greater the earlier (the “further left”) you perform them in the process. Development organizations are continuing to shift left to implement security earlier in the CI/CD pipeline. But software security group leaders need to know where AppSec tools should go in the CI/CD workflow, and their purposes in different phases.
There are a lot of things that you probably are unfamiliar with when it comes to CI/CD and the operating protocols that go along with it. One of the first things that you are going to need to know is that CI/CD stands for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. It can also stand for Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment, depending on the situation.
Nightfall Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is now available as a CircleCI orb. CircleCI orbs are reusable snippets of code that help automate repeated processes, speed up project setup, and make it easy to integrate with third-party tools. With the Nightfall DLP orb, you can scan for sensitive items and prevent developers from accidentally committing sensitive information. We’re excited to announce our launch with CircleCI and share what you can do with the Nightfall DLP orb.
