THE CHALLENGE? DISCONNECTED TEAMS
Because NetOps and SecOps teams traditionally spend the majority of their time and resources on manual, command-line tasks, they’re unable to participate in the automated application delivery pipeline. The problem is, as the amount of applications within a typical organization quickly increases from hundreds to thousands, networking and security teams are finding it harder and harder to keep up with the dev team and include the proper traffic management and security controls with each release. This increases the risk of exposure and performance issues and can also lead to significant post-release management challenges.
THE SOLUTION? EMBRACING NETWORK AND SECURITY AUTOMATION
To increase the scale of operations, NetOps and SecOps professionals need to consider the use of automation. This enables more rapid and frequent deployments with the integration of reusable security and networking policies into CI/CD pipelines. Realign your NetOps and SecOps team ideologies from ticket takers focused on manual, one-off tasks to service providers creating reusable services. With this approach, you free developers up to focus on creating value through new application code, instead of spending their time and resources painstakingly adding the proper networking and security protections to each application manually.
