DevSecOps, at its core, is about creating and managing capabilities for an organization to better achieve its mission. Most commonly, this means deploying production software to users with the features and data access to make those users effective in their jobs.
In Federal Government organizations, security of the user access, the data and the system infrastructure involved is paramount to protecting sensitive data and mission operations. The best software engineering skill and the best system administrations abilities are worthless if the code being created has security vulnerabilities, or if the servers that offer the organization’s services are full of holes and can be hacked by adversaries.
We incorporate security procedures from the very beginning in every aspect of our work. This includes bringing the tooling required to ensure code, infrastructure and platforms are secure, as well as the skills and experience of our employees in navigating our clients’ security practices and risk management frameworks to optimize capability throughput. This makes sure that these aspects of solution creation and deployment are proactively considered, which avoids significant delays and reduces risk to mission execution.
