Today, rapid digitalization has placed a significant burden on software developers supporting remote business operations. Developers are facing continuous pressure to push out software at high velocity. As a result, security is continuously overlooked, as it doesn’t fit into existing development workflows.

The way we build software is increasingly automated and integrated. CI/CD pipelines have become the backbone of modern DevOps environments and a crucial component of most software companies’ operations. CI/CD has the ability to automate secure software development with scheduled updates and built-in security checks.

Developers can build code, run tests, and deploy new versions of software swiftly and securely. While this approach is efficient, major data breaches have demonstrated a significant and growing risk to the CI/CD pipeline in recent months.
