Infographic on Fast IT: Securing DevOps at the Speed of Business
June 23, 2016 | Elizabeth Ireland, Venafi CMO
Key Takeaways
  • According to Gartner, 60% of organizations use DevOps or will soon
  • Fast IT enables DevOps to deliver IT services quickly, but often increases security risks
  • DevOps avoids security that slows IT services, skimping on encryption to avoid manual key and certificate provisioning
  • This infographic shows the benefits of integrating key and certificate provisioning with any DevOps platform—Chef, Puppet, Docker, etc.—automating these provisioning processes as part of the DevOps builds

Earlier this year, Gartner research showed that 60% of organizations are using DevOps or will soon. Businesses are adopting bimodal IT—relying both on traditional (slow) IT as well as “Fast IT.” Fast IT enables DevOps teams to provide IT services quickly to support innovation and development. But to maximize the speed of delivery of these services, it’s not uncommon for DevOps teams to skimp on security. This infographic shows why businesses are increasingly turning to DevOps for Fast IT and the security risks this creates.

Manual certificate generation is too slow and costly

DevOps teams avoid manual processes that can slow down the delivery of IT services. This includes the manual provisioning of keys and certificates, which is the provisioning method used by most organizations. This means DevOps teams often skip encryption to provide faster services. They also take shortcuts with SSH keys, reusing them across different service deployments. But skimping on security can have costly consequences, including data breaches, application outages, and audit remediation requirements.

Build security into your Fast IT environment

How can businesses deliver Fast IT without sacrificing security?  By including the procurement and installation of cryptographic keys and digital certificates as part of the automated build process. This infographic shows the benefits of building security into your Fast IT environment through integrating key and certificate provisioning with any DevOps platform—Chef, Puppet, Docker, etc.—backing security into your DevOps “recipes.”

Your DevOps teams should never have to choose between agility and security. Learn how Venafi can help your DevOps team deliver on the promise of fast IT—safely and quickly.
