A little survey bit from a recent Gartner report on security in DevOps:
At the time of the original DevOpsSec research in 2012, DevOps was relatively new. However, recent Gartner research indicates that 38% of enterprises are now using DevOps, and 50% will be actively using it by the end of 2016. In the same survey, security and audit tools represented the single highest-rated category of tools in terms of importance to an effective and effcient DevOps implementation, and 82% of respondents indicated that they had to deal with one or more regulations in their DevOps initiatives.
Details of the study from the footnotes:
