How Can You Release Great Software Fast… Without Skimping on Security?
Security holes that reach production can kill your company’s reputation instantly!
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 your release process and a future struggle when you do introduce security controls.
But if you ignore the security side, 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 XebiaLabs Release Orchestration and Deployment Automation software to manage, automate and control the complete application delivery pipeline. You’ll gain visibility into the status of every software component at any time, and audit trails are automatically captured. With XL Release and XL Deploy, you can “left-shift” security steps and include them in your delivery process from the beginning.
XL Release lets you automate, orchestrate and get visibility into your release pipelines – at enterprise scale. It allows you to easily define and run delivery pipelines for high security and full compliance scenarios, with templates for decoupled release trains, coordinated master and subreleases, and other advanced release patterns. As you release more often and more quickly, you’ll need XL Release to manage your release pipelines and integrate security steps as a key part of the release process.
With its agentless architecture and model-based approach, XL Deploy is the most advanced deployment automation tool available today, automating and standardizing complex deployments to any target environment. It speeds up your deployment time while greatly reducing errors and failed deployments.
XL Deploy enables self-service deployment for your teams, while maintaining governance and control over the process. It enforces repeatable processes and ensures consistent environments for all your applications, making sure that all steps are followed and that only secure, approved libraries and components are used. You’ll always have insight into the status of your applications and environments, and if something goes wrong, you’ll have the tools and data you need to fix it fast.
XL TestView is a unique test analytics and decision support tool that collects results from all your testing tools. It’s an ideal way to keep track of results from security tests, so you always know how vulnerable your release is. In XL TestView’s clear and configurable results dashboard, you can easily see the outcome of penetration tests, static application security tests (SAST), dynamic application security tests (DAST), fuzz tests, and any others you choose to monitor. You get an instant view into overall release health across all types of tests, and your teams can use this real-time quality data to make informed Go/no-go decisions. Since XL TestView automatically tracks release metrics, it’s easy for you to monitor quality trends over time.
