“DevOps is a way to build and deploy play systems and software that make it much more standardized and faster. It allows for organizations to essentially architect the way that they build and deploy things and do it in an incredible scale,” Dickson says.

The problem, he says, is that it is standard practice for security testing of any new business application or IT system to be pushed to the very end of the software development cycle, just before actual deployment.
