More than half of government information technology professionals who participated in a GitLab-commissioned survey are looking to evaluate or buy a development, security and operations platform within three years.
The annual Global DevSecOps Report covered responses from 5,010 IT professionals across multiple sectors during the month of March and showed that 44 percent of survey participants from the government have used six or more software development tools.
Seventy-five percent of public sector respondents said systems in their organizations were launched slower or at the same rate last year.
The report showed an increase in cybersecurity accountability among DevSecOps teams, with the number of security professionals who became part of a cross-functional cyber defense team climbing from 29 percent in 2022 to 39 percent this year.
Meanwhile, 71 percent said their DevSecOps teams caught at least 25 percent of vulnerabilities. Sixty-two percent of developers employ artificial intelligence/machine learning to check code and 53 percent conduct tests with bots, according to the report.
Research company Savanta helped GitLab conduct the survey through panel sampling approach.
