DevOps + Security.

Utilizing DevSecOps enables Federal agencies to integrate security planning, testing, and monitoring requirements into new and modernized legacy applications, systems, and solutions. 79% of companies that have experienced a security breach indicated that it could have been avoided with a patch or configuration change. Acuity partners with Federal agencies to implement a holistic DevSecOps framework based on stakeholder engagement that results in better secured applications and improved mission performance.

Driving 90% test coverage and 99% SLA,  reduces defects and creates faster more reliable operations. For government agencies struggling with adoption, our agile DevSecOps practice fosters an environment that is founded on transparency, collaboration, and continuous learning. We use 10 core DevSecOps practices: configuration management, continuous delivery, continuous integration, automated validation, Infrastructure as Code (IaC), continuous deployment, continuous monitoring, ongoing infrastructure management, compliance and vulnerability management, and security incident detection and response.
