With our DevSecOps solutions, ECS integrates automation and security into your product pipeline for speedier and secure application development.
APRIL 29, 2021
In the early days of application development, production teams were siloed; coders focused on coding; quality assurance (QA) focused on their testing; and system administrators focused ongoing maintenance. This segmented approach led to many inefficiencies in the build process, but in the last decade, the Development and Operations (DevOps) model has restructured the design process, integrating these teams into close collaborative units. While there are benefits to DevOps—developer teams are more agile, product goes to market quicker, teams innovate faster—security is still segmented and siloed away from core development functions. But as the rate of cyberattacks increase, security cannot remain separate from the DevOps process. Security must be integrated early and throughout development. Many commercial and federal organizations, however, struggle to bring security under the DevOps umbrella.
ECS helps organizations unite IT operations, security, and development into a seamless product pipeline with our development, security, and operations (solutions. Through fast, flexible, and responsive application development, ECS protects your code from concept to implementation and operation, resulting in a stronger and more effective product every time.
CHALLENGE: Manual testing is very time intensive and error prone. Fixing errors late in development is costly.
SOLUTION: With our CI/CD solution, ECS ensures error testing at each stage of the pipeline from development and integration to staging and beyond. ECS automates the testing of repetitive tasks and processes helping to minimize delays and bottlenecks in development. After the tests pass, ECS applies release policies for final deployment approval. ECS conducts safe Green/Blue deployment to minimize risks and reduce errors from making into production, improving quality and reducing the cost to fix errors. Similarly, ECS also applies A/B testing and Canary testing methods once a release is deployed.
CHALLENGE: Implementing compliance and security policies is difficult and time-consuming for your developers.
SOLUTION: With automated security tools for code analysis, configuration management, patching, and vulnerability management, ECS designs scalable security processes for the entire DevSecOps pipeline. By leveraging automation, ECS minimizes the risk of human error and associated vulnerabilities while reducing the overhead that comes with managing software and infrastructure. ECS also builds compliance and security controls into the release pipeline, increasing efficiency and consistency while mitigating security flaws.
