The Essence of Continuous Monitoring

Though monitoring was traditionally carried out in the later stages of the development life cycle, with the emergence of DevOps as well as dynamic consumer demands and expectations are steering the need to integrate monitoring and auditing capabilities earlier into the application’s life cycle.

Continuous monitoring and regular audits of cyber security protocols help organizations identify threats and vulnerabilities earlier, thus enforcing the shift left principle by shifting protection earlier in the CI/CD pipeline.

The primary advantage of this approach is that performance, resource allocation, and functionality issues, misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and other operational challenges can be identified and resolved earlier, when they pose less costs to the organization.

It also helps detect issues that otherwise may have been missed by development, testing, or deployment tools without sacrificing downtime
