Empowering DevOps with Network Security and Application Connectivity Automation

August 6, 2019

Product Manager

DevOps methodologies enable agile application development and rapid delivery. However, sometimes network security is an afterthought, leading to bottlenecks before release and security breaches after.

When it comes to network connectivity, such as whenever a new application needs to connect to an external resource, the continuous delivery process grinds to a halt. Approving and implementing network changes could stall the application provisioning for weeks. The application developer needs to open change requests and wait for approvals, breaking the continuous delivery cycle. As a result, security is in the uncomfortable position of being a bottleneck and an impediment to innovation.

In this webinar, Omer Ganot, AlgoSec’s Product Manager will describe how to seamlessly integrate network security into DevOps, and how the ‘Connectivity as Code’ approach can be implemented to overcome these challenges.

Earlier this year, I blogged about the need to link security with DevOps, and how this can help the development, application delivery and security teams to collaborate more effectively, improve the security of business applications, and cut the costs and time of fixing any problems that may arise.

In previous blogs, we’ve discussed how building security into DevOps processes at an early stage helps organizations maximize the speed and agility of application development, while minimizing the risks of problems and outages when the applications go live.  Here, we will look at how security automation helps to speed up the practice of Continuous Integration (CI), which is a core element of DevOps.

DevOps enables companies to deliver innovations faster to market. But with multiple functional teams collaborating on development, and so many moving parts, security is often left out of the DevOps process and then tacked on at the end - delaying deployment into production and negating many of the benefits of DevOps. Presented by renowned industry expert Prof. Avishai Wool, this new technical webinar will cover best practices for incorporating security into the DevOps lifecycle. This insight will help ensure better collaboration between security and the development teams right from the start and reduce the time, cost and risk of deploying applications into production. In this webinar Professor Wool will cover how to: • Identify and map existing applications and their connectivity flows to establish a baseline • Adjust application connectivity for each stage of the DevOps lifecycle – without coding • Automatically deploy connectivity throughout the development lifecycle using templates • Proactively assess risk and compliance throughout the DevOps process • Manage and maintain security in the production environment
