Agile & DevSecOps

The integration of Agile methodology and Secure DevOps addresses a critical need for enterprise operations that need to develop new services quickly in response to new requirements—without compromising on security

Modernization won’t be engineered using legacy development methods.

The waterfall-style software development lifecycle has its place, but organizations looking to spin out services quickly to meet new requirements—or to use new methods to solve old problems—need a different approach. It’s not just a matter of speed. An iterative lifecycle provides more opportunity to get feedback from key stakeholders, increasing the odds that the final product addresses organizational and end-user requirements—and avoids unanticipated fixes that can drive up the final development costs and result in lengthy delays in deployment. And security cannot be treated as an afterthought, a compliance check made at the end of the development lifecycle resulting in delays and additional costs.

Our Solution Areas

Zolon Tech integrates Agile methodology and Secure DevOps (DevSecOps) tools and processes to help organizations accelerate their adoption of innovative systems and services. Our solution areas include:

Adaptive software development

Zolon Tech continually work on software so it is adaptive to the needs an organization has at that moment. As needs change so does the software.

Agile modeling

Zolon Tech leverages agile modeling best practices to ensure that all projects can follow the agile methodology to achieve greater results.

Agile unified process

The agile unified process is a simple, easy to understand approach to developing business application software using agile techniques and concepts.

Extreme programming

Extreme programming is another software methodology intended to improve software quality and responsive to changing customer requirements.

Daily code commit

Daily code commit is a way to replicate and automatically synch-up a repository for data, ensuring that all information gets routinely saved.

Secure continuous monitoring

Organizations need to know what happens on their network at all times. Secure continuous monitoring manages all network traffic to learn who is on the network, what they are doing and where are they doing.

Secure continuous integration and delivery

Continuous Integration is a way to help build quality, security, and regulatory compliance. In agile development, Continuous Integration, or CI, asks developers to merge code changes into the central code repository often and consistently.

The Zolon Tech Advantage

At Zolon Tech, we understand that our clients cannot afford to prioritize innovation at the expense of quality or security. Organizations benefit from the adoption of Agile and DevOps only if the result is code that meets enterprise standards—something that many development shops have struggled to address. Our approach, based on DevSecOps, bridges that gap. Zolon Tech delivers:

Agility. We can deliver or update software quickly to meet changing requirements without compromising on quality or stability.

Stakeholder engagement. Our processes emphasize open collaboration and between development and user teams and fast and frequent feedback from end-users, resulting in systems that deliver the anticipated benefits.

A security mindset. Rather than treating security as one requirement among many, we integrate security into the full DevOps pipeline, so that security requirements are baked into systems, and not addressed as an afterthought, avoiding costly security fixes late in the process.

Automation. Our reliance on automation reduces the risk of error, reduces costs, and improves the overall quality of the code.

DevSecOps

"DevSecOps provides security practitioners with the ability to script and monitor security controls at a much larger and more dynamic scale than traditional in-house data centers."

In its early years, DevOps was seen by many enterprise organization as a risky concept, with the drive to develop new services coming at the expense of security. DevSecOps changes that equation. Rather than leaving the development process more prone to security problems, DevSecOps makes security requirements an integral part of the development process from start to finish—as such, a vast improvement over older development models, in which security often is treated as an after-thought.
