The Security Compass 2021 State of DevSecOps Report provides an overview of the state of DevSecOps and highlights the challenges that enterprises are facing as they roll out these initiatives at their organizations. Security Compass commissioned Golfdale Consulting to conduct two independent online panel surveys in the Fall of 2020. The first survey focused on DevSecOps with 250 respondents from the U.S. and U.K., representing large enterprises (US$1B+ in annual revenue) that develop software in the technology, banking, insurance, pharma, healthcare, manufacturing and energy/utilities sectors. The study surveyed executives and practitioners in risk/compliance as well technology roles. The second survey exclusively interviewed professionals within the C-Suite on their views on time to market of their software products.

Bringing technology to market faster was the second most important driver, reducing organizational silos third, with cost reduction the least important.
