DevSecOps combines software development, IT security, and operations through a modern corporate and communication culture. ATIX implements the concept through consistent automation, which reduces the susceptibility to errors and makes results reproducible. Security is a focus at every step of the IT lifecycle. This results in improved time to market and tangible success.

DevSecOps in practice

DevOps starts in the mind. The best automation doesn’t work without the right attitude. We actively break down knowledge silos so that everyone works together towards the same goal: successful projects.

  • Code

    We develop incremental applications according to Scrum, which we tailor to the needs of the target infrastructure.

  • Test

    We use state-of-the-art tools for our tests to check code quality, identify security vulnerabilities, and measure the impact on performance.

  • Operate

    We ensure that our solutions work reliably at all times; in the event of problems, we perform a transparent, fast recovery.

  • Release

    We automate the entire release process to optimize time to market.

  • Plan

    We plan an overall solution together to determine requirements and needs and deliver the best possible result.

  • Deploy

    We use automated deployments in all environments to enable faster releases and ensure there are no (nasty) surprises.

  • Monitor

    We use monitoring, logging, and tracing for smooth operation and performance analyses, and keep an eye on the big picture.

  • Build

    We apply fully automated CI/CD chains to achieve consistent, tried-and-tested results, and are happy to support you with setup, further development, and operation.

DevSecOps FAQ

DevOps is more than just a term—it’s a mindset that focuses on agile working and close collaboration across departments. By integrating DevOps principles, companies achieve faster time to market, higher quality, and improved customer satisfaction.

Quite simply, DevOps and Cloud Native are perfectly aligned. The flexibility and agility of cloud-native architectures enable DevOps teams to deploy systems faster and more reliably. Automation and scalability support continuous integration and delivery of software. Together, they form an unbeatable combination to streamline IT operations and drive innovation.

Cloud Native goes beyond just using containers and AWS. It is a broader approach that aims at developing and running applications specifically for the cloud. It’s about taking full advantage of the cloud and maximizing scalability, flexibility, and efficiency.

The term is made up of three sub areas: monitoring, logging, and tracing. Monitoring refers to the continuous surveillance of systems to capture performance indicators. Logging is the recording of logged events, which provides detailed insight into system health. Tracing is the tracking of requests and transactions across different systems.
The collected data can now be used to make targeted measurements. Measurement is an essential part of the DevOps philosophy and has a significant impact on the quality of teams, software, and infrastructure. This allows us to identify bottlenecks, fix problems, and constantly bring about improvements.

The term DevOps originated from “Agile System Transformation” and was intended to promote collaboration between development (Dev) and operations (Ops). However, DevOps has never excluded other areas. On the contrary, it aims to break down siloed structures and create a culture of cooperation and shared responsibility.
The role of security is critical, both in DevOps and in the cloud environment. By using automation, e.g., continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), we can consider security aspects at an early stage and continue to do so during the development process. This enables fast and secure deployment of software and infrastructure.
A comprehensive approach is always necessary to achieve optimal communication between the teams involved. Regular structured meetings, common objectives, and transparent information are essential. The integration of security experts into the DevOps process, in addition to the use of security as code, enables seamless collaboration and sharing of best practices among all stakeholders.

DevOps engineers are not a panacea for all problems. Instead, they are key players who drive the DevOps approach in the enterprise. They help bridge the gap between development and operations by ensuring processes run smoothly and efficiently.
DevOps engineers work closely with various teams. With the appropriate technologies and the right mindset, they intensify collaboration and promote consistent automation DevOps engineers automate tasks, manage infrastructure, and provide for effective monitoring, logging, and tracing to ensure stability and scalability of systems and bring about continuous improvement through measurement.
In contrast, agile coaches are experts in the agile methodology. They help teams work in an agile way by teaching agile principles and practices. Agile coaches foster collaboration, help teams with their self-management, and ensure continuous improvement by means of frameworks, such as Scrum.
