New research reveals that 73% of respondents admit more could be done to improve DevSecOps practices and highlights commonalities to those businesses finding success.

Conducted by Insight Avenue and sponsored by Progress, the survey aimed to uncover the true state of DevOps and DevSecOps adoption – from business priorities to technology adoption, lack of cultural alignment and investment, and the common pitfalls and successes shared by businesses worldwide.

Significant findings from the survey include:

  • Many companies are behind in achieving their DevOps and DevSecOps goals: 73% of organizations said they could be doing more, 76% acknowledge they need to be more strategic about how they manage DevSecOps, and 17% still consider themselves at an exploratory and proof-of-concept stage. 
  • Security is the number one driver behind most DevOps and DevSecOps implementations. Yet only 30% feel confident in the level of collaboration between security and development, 86% experience challenges in their current approaches to security and 51% admit that they don’t fully understand how security fits into DevSecOps.
  • Culture is the biggest barrier to DevOps and DevSecOps success. In fact, 71% of respondents agreed that culture is the biggest barrier to DevSecOps progress, yet only 16% are prioritizing culture as an area to optimize in the next 12-18 months.
