“Over half of developers (52.4%) felt security policies stifle their innovation. When security is so simplified and accessible that development teams don’t even realize it’s there, then security not only meets its traditional goals of reducing risks but—more importantly—becomes a business enabler by allowing development teams to be more innovative while increasing compliance and business revenue.”
