Aside from zero trust architectures and infrastructure and security as code services, the GSA's contract solicitation is looking for partners that could provide security automation, enterprise security visibility, and improved application security, which could help the agency further reduce cybersecurity risks, said GSA Chief Information Officer David Shive.

And then because we've been doing DevSecOps here at GSA for a long time, using agile for a long time, they need to fit seamlessly into that because theyre the Sec in DevSecOps," said Shive.
