Enable your teams to run faster and more efficiently
Here are 10 tips to help your teams shift left for more efficient DevSecOps.
How much time is lost remediating vulnerabilities after code is merged? Measure this, then look for a pattern in the type or source of those vulnerabilities, and makethe necessary adjustments for improvement.
Where are the pain points and bottlenecks between security protocols and processes? Identify these, and then create and execute a resolution plan.
Is unplanned and unscheduled work delaying releases? Automating and implementing compliance frameworks help with consistency across development environments, teams, and applications.
Ditch the toolchain
Streamline and reduce your toolchain so that employees can focus their attention on a single interface — a single source of truth.
Are manual processes slowing down and hampering the process of discovering vulnerabilities? Automate findings into a merge request for easier review, finding sources, and accessibility for developers to address.
Are people still holding on to waterfall-style security processes within the SDLC? Eliminating or reducing waterfall will help your organization prevent the struggle to change direction as needs arise.
Do your developers have access to SAST and DAST reports? These valuable tools help dev teams build secure coding practices, fixing vulnerabilities as part of their workflow.
Empower the security team to work smarter with security dashboards into both resolved and unresolved vulnerabilities, where the vulnerabilities reside, who created them, and their status for remediation.
Make small code changes — they are easier to review, secure, and launch more quickly than large project changes.
Are security scans included in your developers’workflow? Building and integrating security into developer workflows enable them to find and fix vulnerabilities before the code ever leaves their hands.
Shift left with GitLab
GitLab helps you initiate a proactive security strategy to discover vulnerabilities earlier in the SDLC. Security and compliance are embedded within The One DevOps Platform, with an end-to-end DevSecOps workflow that enables you to understand and manage risk. Automatically scan for vulnerabilities on a feature branch so you can remediate vulnerabilities before pushing to production.
GitLab empowers customers and users to innovate faster,scale more easily, and serve and retain customers more effectively.
