Nearly one-third of all mature DevOps teams were breached in 2019. For one-fifth of those teams, the breach was related to open source components. And all of those numbers are for a field in which 88% of respondents to a newly released survey say their DevOps practices are improving or mature.

The "2020 DevSecOps Community Survey," published by Sonatype, found more than half — 55% — of companies said they're deploying code to production at least once a week. That rapid deployment happens much more securely in organizations with a mature DevOps process, with the more mature organizations investing in automating and integrating security teams twice as often as less mature teams.

More mature, more secure teams have another advantage: They have happier developers, who reported 1.6 times higher job satisfaction than those on less mature teams, according to the research.

The survey is based on research developed and conducted in partnership with Carnegie Mellon's Software Engineering Institute, CloudBees, DevOps Institute,, DevSecOps Days, NowSecure, Security Boulevard, Verica, and All Day DevOps.
