Identifying and addressing a security issue early in the application development lifecycle reduces risk, cost, and improves productivity. In many organizations, however, security is often the last gate which can slow down developers from launching new features to customers.

With proper DevSecOps implementation, security becomes an integral part of the application delivery pipeline, allowing developers to receive rapid and contextual feedback as they build new features. Automated delivery pipelines with baked-in security and observability enable teams to rapidly test and release features while minimizing errors and reducing risk.

The new DevSecOps category for the AWS DevOps Competency makes it easy for customers to find validated AWS Partners with DevSecOps products. These partners can help customers build secure applications by integrating security controls and policies into their application delivery pipelines.

The DevSecOps products in this new category provide multiple layers of protection across all stages of the delivery lifecycle. They scan application code, infrastructure code, and cloud configurations for any security standards or policy violations; monitor applications at runtime; help run security testing; scan third-party libraries for supply chain vulnerabilities; and provide protection and remediation against violations.


AWS Partners Have Proven Experience in DevOps

The AWS Competency Program is designed to validate and promote AWS Partners with demonstrated technical expertise and proven customer success.

A Competency designation helps AWS Partners differentiate their business to customers by showcasing their products and services in specialized areas across industries, use cases, and workloads.

To achieve the AWS DevOps Competency, partners’ DevOps offerings are validated against AWS best practices by AWS DevOps experts.
