DevOps teams have often been underserved by security tools. Modern appsec solutions need to fit within the existing workflows related to how software is built and deployed. But just dropping a tool into that pipeline isn’t sufficient — there are apps that haven’t migrated to modern build processes or framework and many cloud-native apps demand different approaches to deployment. We’ll cover the different approaches to adapting security tools to the needs of the developers.
