DevOps and Continuous Delivery practices lead to increased automation and accelerated releases, but the teams driving these initiatives often fail to bring Security and Risk Management teams to the table early enough. And for good reason: it’s quite the challenge to bring these teams in, carry out all the necessary steps, and still meet deadlines. The typical result is a potential for security holes in the release process and a future struggle when security controls are introduced.
But if you ignore the security side of software release and deployment, you could lose everything from your customers’ trust to your intellectual property.
To ensure security steps become an immutable, trackable part of the process without getting in the way, enterprise IT teams rely on the XebiaLabs DevOps Platform to manage, automate, and control the complete application delivery pipeline.
XebiaLabs Release Orchestration lets you automate, orchestrate, and get visibility into your release pipelines at enterprise scale. You can easily define and run delivery pipelines for high security and full compliance scenarios, with built-in security checks and automatic audit logging.
XebiaLabs enables you to create a standardized process that includes security steps and ensures that they can’t be skipped. You can build code quality evaluation into the release process with tools such as Fortify, SonarQube, Sonatype, and Black Duck, and take action if application code does not meet security standards.
Plus, XebiaLabs provides complete visibility for everyone who’s involved in the release process, so Security and Risk Management teams can stay up-to-date and fully informed on release status.
XebiaLabs Deployment Automation standardizes complex deployments to any target environment—from cloud and containers to middleware and mainframes. XebiaLabs’ agentless architecture and declarative, model-based approach speeds up deployment time while greatly reducing errors and failed deployments.
With XebiaLabs, you can enable self-service deployments for teams across the enterprise while maintaining governance and control over the release and deployment process. You can enforce repeatable processes that ensure teams follow the right deployment and only use secure, approved libraries and components.
XebiaLabs DevOps Intelligence enables you to optimize software delivery with goal-based DevOps KPIs that show the impact of your DevOps initiatives. XebiaLabs analyzes your software delivery pipelines and highlights trends and anomalies, so you can address problems before they become failures.
With XebiaLabs, you can spot potential security issues early in the process and stop them before they make it to Production. You can predict security risks and make data-driven decisions about process improvements that will have the greatest impact.
