Secure guardrails have emerged as a vital tool for standardizing security measures, enabling security teams to furnish clear guidelines to development and engineering teams across the software development lifecycle (SDLC). By aligning with shift-left practices, guardrails establish specific frameworks and security protocols to safeguard software against vulnerabilities, while also enforcing compliance and policy adherence.

Techstrong Research polled our community of security, cloud and DevOps readers and viewers to gauge their perspectives on secure guardrails within software development environments. The findings underscore the significance of secure guardrails in modern software development, with key benefits including enhanced developer satisfaction, accelerated application delivery, and reduced risk of catastrophic breaches in production environments.
