"Today, the technologies that enable the agility and responsiveness objectives of the DevOps approach to be achieved can to a large extent be implemented in the public cloud", said Fabrice Croiseaux. "However, our customers can benefit from a comparable level of service through a platform hosted in Luxembourg, in the Trusted Cloud Europe and EBRC's Tier IV Data Centres, and meet both the regulatory requirements of the various regulators and the compliance criteria of the most demanding international standards such as ISO 27001, ISO 20000, ISO 22301, Tier IV and PCI DSS, among others."
The EBRC-Kubernetes as a Service cloud platform includes all the building blocks needed to industrialise the deployment, scaling and orchestration of micro-service architectures and containerised applications . With the Red Hat OpenShift solution - a continuous security-oriented platform common to development and operations teams that allows them to create, deploy and manage containerised applications -, EBRC-KaaS forms the foundation of InTech and EBRC's DevSecOps technology offering. By focusing on openness and interoperability, POST group companies differentiate themselves from traditional public cloud stakeholders and enable companies to protect themselves against the risk of vendor lock-in.
"EBRC also has very high levels of expertise in information security and cyber-resilience as well as in process management and information systems governance", recalls Jean-François Hugon. "By combining their respective expertise", he goes on to say, "InTech and EBRC support their customers in their DevSecOps journey by helping them transform their development methods as well as by ensuring a transfer of skills relating to new ways of approaching infrastructure."
Both the scope and impact of a transition to DevSecOps are considerable. Although DevOps remains complex in the eyes of highly-responsible developers, system administrators are forced to adapt their traditional skills to information systems configured and managed by code. These are risk factors that must be taken into account in any DevSecOps strategy.
From development to operation, from ideation to maintenance, EBRC and InTech combine all the assets to enable companies to seamlessly integrate into their IT organisation all the key factors on which a successful transition to DevSecOps depends, whether for the purpose of setting up an active collaboration between all stakeholders, standardising development and delivery processes by integrating cybersecurity requirements, introducing new technological tools for automating checks and operations, or organising cross-functional governance which is common to all businesses and professions involved in the application lifecycle.
