Alarming
Its alarming to see that externally facing infrastructure is not even being password protected (a very weak form of protection). What is even more alarming is that these devops tools are utilizing company data instead of test data.

Do You Believe in Magic
With Continuous Integration, DevOps says that you can install modified software as soon as it passes the test suite.  Even if you could have a test suite that would test every required function for the application, how can a test suite insure that you haven't added vulnerabilities.  Remember that many people think that Agile means no documentation (rather than don't write more documentation than you need) so you don't know what to test for.

There was a song entitled "Do You Believe in Magic".  I get the feeling that a lot of IT management feels that Agile, Scrum, DevOps, SecOps are magic wands and everything will go perfectly so long as you recite the proper incantations at your stand-up meetings.  They don't think that you need to think about anything else.  (And the product looks like they didn't think about anything.)  Before you expect them to understand the need for security, you need to get them to understand how to write software that works.
