DevSecOps is a way for development, security, and operations teams to work together throughout the project life cycle. It is often implemented by adding security to existing DevOps teams and agile processes.
The idea behind this collaboration is to incorporate security early in the development process. This is called shifting security left. As security moves to the “left” of the development process, application vulnerabilities and bugs are discovered and addressed faster. This leads to more secure product releases with a reduced need to apply patches and troubleshoot in production. Applying DevSecOps to Node.js development can improve both the efficiency and security of Node.js projects.
