This paper explores why organizations innovating in the cloud must address security issues before runtime. By proactively incorporating security and compliance through infrastructure as code templates much earlier in the CI/CD pipeline, security teams create better security experiences for DevOps teams, increase participation in and quality of security, and improve product security and quality.

The whitepaper outlines the following key points: 

  • Security needs to shift left, earlier in the the process
  • IaC templates can drive developers to achieve continuous cloud security and compliance in a positive, proactive manner, far before runtime
  • By addressing security earlier and throughout the lifecycle, security teams create a better experience for developers, which fosters better participation, and ultimately, better security
