I recently had the pleasure of moderating a lively discussion with security leaders at the SINET Innovation Summit 2019 in New York. The conversation explored one central question: Can security and DevOps coexist?

DevOps, the agile relationship between the two, has led many development and operation groups to excel at swiftly iterating and delivering new software products and updates across devices, applications, networks and more. As an example, Netflix engineers allegedly release code thousands of times every day to stay ahead of fierce competitors like Hulu and Amazon Prime.
