Security hardening with DevSecOps

Zappi used our DevSecOps expertise to improve their software development processes & security levels.

Netguru has excellent developers who love what they do, have contributed to the tech community, and have a broad range of skills. Their project management is equally professional meaning there are no surprises.

The bottom line is that both our developers and product managers enjoy working with them, meaning Netguru continues to be our chosen outsourcing partner.

In our most recent project Netguru supported us in DevSecOps area.

They helped us improve our software development processes through automation and hardening.

Thanks to this support, we were able to improve part of our internal processes and ensure greater security of our services already at the production stage.

Establish secure development processes

Enhance cybersecurity and avoid implementation compromises with bespoke solutions

  • Risk assessment. Leverage a holistic map of potential weak spots to assess technical and business risk
  • Threat modeling. Identify security vulnerabilities and attack scenarios, and include security controls within project scope
  • Consulting and architecture analysis. Support design and development teams with expert security knowledge and tailor-made solutions
  • CI/ CD pipeline hardening. Reconfigure and expand processes, enabling early detection of security issues and compliance
  • Extended security testing. Broaden security coverage with regular assessments, accelerating secure app development
  • Cloud hardening. Pinpoint missing security controls and facilitate their implementation at config level

Secure software development lifecycle (S-SDLC) framework

Using DevSecOps to project management according to S-SDLC – driven by business-oriented consulting, and with security paramount

  1. Risk assessment. Taking place in the early stages of the software development lifecycle and fundamental to the secure-by-design approach, this outlines potential risk from a business perspective.
  2. Threat modeling and architecture analysis. Ideal when building a product from scratch and usable at every stage of the framework, these utilize proposed use cases, test cases and user stories to identify and analyze security threats and build customized solutions.
  3. CI/CD pipeline hardening and static analysis (SAST&DAST). Reshape developer IT workflows to enhance resiliency, single out security errors at the development stage, and adhere to international standards and legal standards such as OWASP, NIST, HIPAA, and PCI-DSS.
  4. Security testing. Extend quality assurance scope and improve continuity via audits and assessments at every sprint, quickening secure product development and reducing time-to-market, with cybersecurity out-of-the-box.
  5. Security assessment and secure configuration. Uncover misconfigurations, potential vulnerabilities and threats to cloud environments, test access and security policies, verify data protection in transit and at rest, assess and harden critical services, and offer improvement recommendations.

What are DevSecOps services?


DevSecOps services help build a secure foundation for DevOps initiatives. The meaning of DevSecOps is development, security, and operations.

DevSecOps involves considering application and infrastructure security from the outset and end to end. DevSecOps also incorporates automation, to ensure the DevOps workflow isn’t compromised.

To continuously integrate product security, it’s important to choose the right tools and integrate security right from the start.

DevSecOps approach sees security as integral to the software development lifecycle (SDLC), building it in at the start of the pipeline, and creating code with security in mind.

Our top-class DevSecOps strategies include sub-services such as risk assessment, threat modelling, and CI/CD pipeline hardening.

Differences between DevOps and DevSecOps

  • DevOps is a combo of two words: Development and operations. DevSecOps amalgamates three words: Development, security and operations.
  • DevOps bridges the gap between development teams and IT operations, ensuring collaboration. DevSecOps is integrated within DevOps, building security into every step and optimizing the DevOps strategy.
  • DevOps breaks down the organizational silos that exist between development and operations by creating a continuous delivery pipeline. DevSecOps builds security in at every stage of the development lifecycle.
  • DevOps supports the agile movement and enhances productivity and efficiency, accelerating the product launch lifecycle. DevSecOps is a security-first approach, validating security without impairing the development lifecycle, and installing security into the architecture from the very start.

DevSecOps strategy

An effective DevSecOps strategy involves three key components: Secure-by-design, defence-in-depth, and shift-left security.

Secure-by-design is a cybersecurity approach that allows businesses to automate data security controls and build security into IT processes from the outset.

It focuses on stopping a breach rather than one happening, then fixing it. Secure-by-design looks to continually manage, monitor, and maintain security risks.

The cloud makes it easier for developers to accomplish security-by-design. Originating from a military strategy, defence-in-depth is a layered security architecture that provides defence measures, in case a vulnerability is exploited or a control fails.

The idea is to delay a cyber attack rather than defeat it. Defence-in-depth utilizes physical, technical, and administrative security controls.

The secure-by-design concept forces shift-left security, meaning IT security is implemented at the earliest design stages, reducing the costs associated with exposing potential security issues further down the line.

The sooner a threat is diagnosed, the cheaper it is to remove and secure it.

Best DevSecOps methods

DevSecOps services apply security at each stage of the DevOps pipeline.

These phases include plan, code, build, test, and deploy. The tools involved include:

  • Risk assessment
  • Threat modeling
  • Consulting & architecture analysis
  • CI/CD pipeline hardening and review
  • Extended security testing with penetration testing and security audits (Black Box, Grey Box, and White Box)
  • Cloud hardening
  • Vulnerability scanning
  • Configuration hardening and review
  • Source code review
  • Red Teaming
  • Phishing tests
  • Open-source intelligence
  • Incident response and digital forensics

DevSecOps culture

DevSecOps culture focuses on uniting development, security, and operations. Normally siloed, DevSecOps installs collaboration and shared responsibilities, breaking down barriers. It offers common goals across disciplines and departments and fosters empathy.

There are four main pillars:

  • People
  • Processes
  • Technologies
  • Governance
