The IDC Perspective discusses the concept of security as code (SaC), a methodology that integrates security into the software development life cycle (SDLC). It highlights the challenges faced by CIOs, CISOs, and security decision-makers, such as cybersecurity threats, digital transformation gaps, and supply chain risks. The document explores the benefits of SaC, including visibility, consistency, automation, and fostering a DevSecOps culture. It also provides advice for technology suppliers and service providers, emphasizing the need for proactive solutions and a shift-left security approach.

"Security as code is yet another layer of protection for the CIA triad of confidentiality, integrity, and availability," says Philip Bues, research manager, Cloud Security at IDC.
