THE CHALLENGE? TRADING SECURITY AND PERFORMANCE FOR DEPLOYMENT SPEED
While deployment cycles continue to speed up using automated CI/CD pipelines, many network and security policies are still attached using manual, ticket-driven processes. That mismatch in cycles can lead app teams to by-pass corporate security and network policies in favor of releasing code quickly.
But security threats haven’t disappeared. The threat surface area is growing as apps are being stretched across multi-cloud environments. And with application downtime being so incredibly detrimental to a brand, high performance at all times is vital. So when threats or performance issues are detected, DevOps teams often lack the tools or expertise they need to respond effectively.
THE SOLUTION? SEAMLESS CI/CD INTEGRATION
Application services that provide advanced security protection and intelligent traffic routing can be automatically provisioned through the same tools and processes driving your CI/CD pipeline. This way, your DevOps teams can leverage the existing development and deployment pipelines, without slowing down innovation or increasing company risk.
