Building applications that meet common regulatory compliance standards
Compliance management can be hard and time consuming. It requires coordination within organizations to ensure different functional groups are aligned and that processes meet the regulatory requirements for relevant standards. The cost of non compliance can be high - appearing in the form of revenue loss, business disruptions, fines, or negative brand perceptions, among others.
Organizations need a compliance program that is built-in, not bolted-on, to their existing workflows and processes. "Traditional compliance practices are incompatible with continuous software delivery processes, leading to slower delivery and unexpected, expensive remediation work." (Gartner®, Hype Cycle™ for Agile and DevOps, 2021, Herschmann, Joachim and Spafford, George, 2021) As a complete DevOps platform, GitLab is a great choice for compliance teams to keep up with the changing regulations and emerging risks, while ensuring compliance is integrated into their organization, rather than being an afterthought.
GitLab's approach to DevSecOps directly integrates required compliance jobs into developer pipelines, ensures proper seperation of duties, audit systems, and more This makes it possible to "Implement a shift-left approach to ensure compliance controls are understood earlier in the development process," ( Gartner®, Hype Cycle™ for Agile and DevOps, 2021, Herschmann, Joachim and Spafford, George, 2021 )
GitLab compliance management aims to change the current paradigm for compliance to create an experience that's simple, friendly, and as frictionless as possible by enabling you to define, enforce and report on compliance policies and frameworks.
"Organizations are facing an increasing number of regulatory obligations and more stringent enforcement, so automating compliance will become even more valuable to I&O [Infrastructure and Operations] leaders" (Gartner®, Hype Cycle™ for Agile and DevOps, 2021, Herschmann, Joachim and Spafford, George, 2021). GitLab enables powerful compliance automation through enforcing policies and separation of duties while reducing overall business risk.
