Automation can help reduce human errors and can improve speed and consistency in your compliance tasks. It can make time-consuming, manual tasks repeatable by allowing for reusable workflows for consistent results. Some examples include full stack automated patching with automated workflows and automated scanning and remediation against both vulnerabilities and security compliance.
Automation can help integrate security requirements into processes, application, and infrastructure from the start (from development to production). It’s Important to have a consistent automation strategy across teams in your organization--one that can interconnect infrastructure operations, application development, and security operations.
