This IDC Survey examines the contrasting security versus developer perspectives from a survey of United States–based organizations adopting DevSecOps to improve their overall application security posture. The analysis was based on IDC's U.S. DevSecOps Adoption Survey of over 300 IT professionals, performed in January 2023. This analysis presents selected questions from the larger survey where perceptions between roles were varied and provided insight. The roles examined in this analysis are:

  • Dev/DevOps: Includes respondents who self-identified as development/engineering individual contributors, development/engineering leadership (VP/director), development/engineering team leader/manager/supervisor, DevOps individual contributors, DevOps leadership (VP/director), DevOps team leader/manager/supervisor

  • Security: Includes respondents who self-identified as security individual contributors, security team leader/manager/supervisor, security/cybersecurity leadership (VP/director)
