DevSecOps in Financial Services with JFrog on Microsoft Azure

Accelerate Secure and Compliant Software Releases for Continuous Innovation

Challenges In Financial Services DevSecOps

Regulatory compliance

Adherence to industry regulations, data privacy, and corporate governance requirements is paramount. Rapid software releases require strict control and auditing, making it a challenge to strike a balance between agility and compliance.

Security risks

The financial services industry is a primary target for cybercriminals. Shifting security left in the software development process to identify and address vulnerabilities early and throughout the release lifecycle is critical for financial institutions.

Legacy systems and modern application support

IT infrastructures in financial services tend to be complex, ranging from traditional on-premises data centers to modern cloud deployments. DevSecOps in financial services must scale to manage the complexity of supporting legacy platforms and modern applications, from monolithic to distributed microservices architecture.

Industry technology disruptions

Keeping pace with technological innovations in financial services and remaining competitive requires continually releasing new and updated software to enhance digital services. This is a pace of change the industry historically avoided but now must embrace.

Intensifying customer demands

Customer expectations continue to climb with regard to the digital experience. Customers expect more from their financial services providers, including personalized, feature-rich, fast, and always available offerings.
