DevSecOps extends the DevOps mindset, a philosophy that integrates security practices into every phase of DevOps. The DevSecOps methodology creates a 'Security as Code' culture with an ongoing, flexible collaboration between the app's release engineers and the organization's established security teams.
"DevSecOps" stands for "development, security, operations," and the individuals who hold this position are responsible for bringing these three concepts together to create a more robust security system for their organization. DevSecOps engineers typically test and monitor a company's system for vulnerabilities.
The average DevSecOps salary in the USA is $140,000 per year, or $71.79 per hour. Entry level positions start at $120,000 per year, while most experienced workers make up to $180,000 per year.
Those who master DevSecOps can expect a long and profitable career. Job security for DevSecOps engineers is even more assured, because unlike traditional cybersecurity tactics like vulnerability scanning with an array of software-based tools, DevSecOps requires people who know how to implement security as they code.
