92 percent of organizations struggle to implement security into the entire DevOps process despite most saying they want to do so – a staggering capability gap exposed in the new, global data report commissioned by Checkmarx. The study spotlights the biggest barriers to securing software today depending on where organizations sit on the DevOps maturity curve.
Report findings are based on online survey input from 183 respondents worldwide, the majority of whom hold software development, IT and security professional titles ranging in seniority from management to specialists and in-between, and coming from a wide range of industry sectors.
“Today, software is everywhere and the majority of respondents agree that it is integral to most business initiatives, yet there are still many gaps when it comes to securing that software. Increased software complexity and the need to move at the speed of DevOps is creating a new type of risk in the form of software exposure, and as the results of this report attest, software security also needs to change.”
