How Visibility and Data Unite Engineering, Security & Operations: Dev + Sec + Ops = DevSecOps

ByMahesh Babu October 13, 2017

More than ever before, the security of a running application is a shared responsibility:

  1. The security team needs to detect, monitor and respond to an application layer breach
  2. The operations team needs to ensure performance, stability & reliability of the application in the event of a breach
  3. The engineering team needs to know what security defects to fix and what libraries & components are safe to use

However, all three groups are running blind when it comes to the security state of the running application. Contrast’s Application Security Monitoring solution fills the visibility gap that current Development, Security & Operations teams experience when monitoring and responding to attacks on running applications. Since Contrast’s agent resides inside the application, Contrast provides instant visibility into running applications that perimeter solutions cannot. This enables Development, Security & Operations to see & review application security attacks and inherent vulnerabilities in real time and agree on a remediation plan – all from a single, unified dashboard.

To see how Contrast's Application Security Monitoring can bring Development, Security & Operations together and provide a common understanding of your running applications, please read this technical brief: The Case for Application Security Monitoring.
