One of the key ways to get developers to jump wholeheartedly onto the application security (appsec) bandwagon is to stop making it so darned difficult for them to shoehorn security processes into their daily workflows. A big ingredient to DevSecOps success is an organization's ability to implement security tools that developers don't hate.

To do that, organizations need to improve the integration between the security testing suite and all of the rest of the tools developers use to deliver software. The good news is that this kind of integration doesn't have to break the bank. While it's probably not possible to do this completely for free, the fact is that some of the most DevOps friendly security tools that integrate well into the continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) stack also happen to be free.

Here are some promising possibilities.
