You want AppSec tools in your development process, but anything less than full integration undermines your program’s effectiveness. Getting the right resources into developers’ hands typically requires:
• Procuring new hardware: Your security team must source hardware, and then install application software and configure databases.
• Building integrations: Next, security moves on to building connections—and often customizations—into existing development tools, systems, and processes.
• Ongoing maintenance: Routine patches and upgrades can be time consuming—especially if you’re supporting multiple geographies or teams—and may break your customizations.
