More than 96% of software development projects fail across the globe because too many businesses rely on the legacy DevOps process which allows us to run security testing right before going to production. Using the legacy DevOps can lead to a downfall of the project management triangle (Budget, Scope, and Time). However, with more efficient use of dynamic application security testing tools (DAST) in every single stage/sprint, the legacy DevOps can be transformed into DevSecOps, in turn preventing our projects from failing.
