Data security has always been an important consideration. The importance of secure applications and updates, however, has only continued to grow in importance. This is evidenced by recent advice from the White House on proper data security measures that should be taken to avoid breaches and data loss events.
DevSecOps security tools are an essential aspect of properly securing your Salesforce environment and producing applications and updates that support your data security strategy.
Traditionally, security considerations weren’t addressed until the last stages of the development pipeline. And while this is better than nothing, there are new tactics and strategies that improve upon these traditional approaches. DevSecOps includes data security considerations throughout the dev pipeline from the very early stages all the way to the end.
DevSecOps security tools support this effort. These tools will also provide other benefits such as speeding along development processes by automating previously time-consuming, manual tasks. However, perhaps the greatest benefit of utilizing DevSecOps security tools is fortifying your data security strategy and working to avoid costly interruptions in service.
