It is a tale as old as time, or in this case, a tale as old as code. Since the inception of applications, Security and Development teams have struggled to find a good balance between delivery/deployment speed and implementing security.

This movement has enabled developers to go from code-to-cloud in hours, which has been a phenomenal advancement for organizations. Where AppSec teams are struggling is that legacy AppSec systems and processes are known to impede security teams from being able to scale at the speed of their development counterparts. This has led to a lack of visibility or control over security risks and AppSec teams are completely unprepared to govern and secure the modern SDLC.
