In a traditional DevOps model, security is pushed to the end of the development lifecycle. Postponing security to the final stage of the cycle makes security issues much harder to discover and remediate. A DevSecOps framework turns security into a responsibility shared by all teams, during all stages of development.

The name DevSecOps reflects the unification of all components—security, development, and operations. A DevSecOps mindset requires checking for and addressing security throughout the entire software development lifecycle.
