Integrating Security into Your Code Culture
The Need for Adding Security to DevOps
DevOps has allowed developers to create business applications and customize software rapidly by aligning operations and development teams. However, in many cases, security is not a major component of DevOps implementation, and it is seen as a stringent barrier that slows down development. Do you know that:
- Cybercrime related damage is expected to cross $6 trillion annually by 2021?
- Security breaches have gone up by 67% in the last six years?
- The average cost of a breach is nearly $4 million?
Many companies aren’t including security in their development process, making themselves vulnerable to insider threats, malware, backdoors, and improper configuration. This is where DevSecOps brings terrific value to the table.
The DevSecOps methodology is about incorporating cybersecurity as a primary component of DevOps practices. It serves as an extension of DevOps, embedding security processes, and controls into the DevOps workflow and automating the fundamental security activities.
What makes DevSecOps different from other development processes is that security principles are added right from the beginning and are regularly implemented throughout the development lifecycle.
Gartner predicts that by 2022, 90% of software development projects are expected to use DevSecOps.
CCT’s DevSecOps CI CD Approach
CCT’s DevSecOps approach is made of six components:
- Code analysis – We speed up the rapid identification of vulnerabilities via code delivery in small chunks.
- Change management – We enables users to submit changes for increasing efficiency and speed and find whether the change’s impact is positive or negative.
- Investigative threats – Potential risks can emerge in any code update. We spot these threats early and neutralize them effectively.
- Monitoring compliance – Companies should comply with latest regulations, such as CCPA, PCI DSS, and GDPR. We prepare them for audits at any time based on the industry, state, and federal regulations.
- Training – We train your company’s IT and software engineers with security training and guide them to write secure code.

Frequently Asked Questions
A Microservice is the breaking up of traditionally tightly coupled application components into small specialized services that communicate through HTTPS REST and HTTPS API interfaces.
Since Microservices are small specialized services, they can be quickly and efficiently rearranged to accommodate future capabilities unknown at the present time.
Microservices are independent and modular which allows for significant flexibility in communications patterns and often prevent cascading failure.
DevOps is the combination of development and operations into a single function of software development and infrastructure management. The main priority of DevOps is the reduction of barriers to speed of delivery.
DevSecOps empowers everyone in the development process using a security focused tool set to address timely security decisions at speed and scale of each development stage. The main priority of DevSecOps is risk reduction through DevOps security accountability and governance.
Security automation in DevSecOps increases speed of code releases while reducing the risk using static application security testing (SAST), dynamic application security testing (DAST), and code dependency checking.
High business value is realized from quick and efficient response to market opportunities and challenges, optimization for innovation, and reduction of technical debt all lead to superior competitive advantage.

Benefits of Secure Code Pipeline
CCT’s DevSecOps services can allow your organization to enjoy the following advantages.
Reduce Time on Configuring Security Consoles
DevSecOps cut downs the time cybersecurity experts spend manually looking into security consoles. We employ access control, identity access management, vulnerability scanning, and firewalling to automate your security functions throughout the DevOps cycle. In this way, security teams can dedicate time to other critical areas and ramp up the protection.
Traditionally, developers view security as a roadblock to innovation. The integration of DevSecOps allows organizations to build an intuitive and secure product. It generates greater ROI and improves operational efficiency across security and IT departments.
Modern cybercriminal groups are continuously attempting to exploit software applications. They unload malware, such as ransomware and spyware that can put your servers at risk. Often hackers go ahead with these nefarious objectives when your application is in the production stage so they can target the weaker development environment, which is not being developed while keeping security as a priority.
As a result, vulnerabilities are discovered, data is stolen, and the company faces severe financial and reputational damage. Fortunately, the DevSecOps philosophy can nip vulnerabilities in the bud with continuous vulnerable testing, so your security gaps are addressed early on.
Reduce Legal Liability
Other than financial and reputational loss, there’s another mountain for organizations to climb after getting hacked. It’s the legal dilemma where potential lawsuits and fines can hit them. Adhering to standard, but crucial practices, even for a basic website, is likely to decrease legal impact and risks that commonly arise from a complacent approach to security.
Detect Loopholes in Open-Source Code
With millions of repositories on Github, any software package can comprise a security vulnerability. Many developers, especially beginners, aren’t able to identify them on time, which puts the entire organization at risk.
CCT’s integrated Secure Code Pipeline DevSecOps strategy incorporates automation, so developers aren’t using any open-source library that contains vulnerabilities.

CCT’s DevSecOps Process
Once you subscribe our CI CD services, we initiate work by following these steps.
Step 1: Compile a Build
We retrieve code from your online repository and compile a build as per the project’s programming language.
Step 2: Implement SAST
We implement the Static Application Security Test (SAST) to assess your binaries, byte code, and application source code to determine one or more line of codes (LoCs) with insecure code.
Step 3: Test in a Staging Environment
We test builds, codes, and updates to meet quality standards for a production-like environment before the system is deployed. The staging environment needs to replicate the same settings for caches, databases, servers, and hardware so the functions work properly.
Step 4: Perform UAT
We conduct User Acceptance Testing (UAT) to test the customer’s application and run tasks against real-world scenarios.
Step 5: Run DAST
We run a Dynamic Application Security Test (DAST) tool to identify potential security risks in your software architecture and web applications.
Step 6: Start Infrastructure Scanning
Scan the publicly disclosed vulnerabilities.
Step 7: Launch Compliance Scan
Run compliance scans to compare adherence for compliance frameworks.
Step 8: Allow Clients to Interact
We offer exposure to our clients, so they have direct interaction with their application. It is an extremely sensitive phase where we may deploy new code to the live environment or add a configuration change.
Step 9: Deploy WAF
Lastly, we run a Web Application Firewall (WAF) for scanning, monitoring, and controlling your local system access, Internet, and network.
