GitMantis: Bridging Application Delivery and Security

Jay Pasteris, CIO and CISO, Blue Mantis, commented:

"Our GitOps practice launch is driven by strong demand from organizations seeking to bridge the gap between development and operations by leveraging Git as a single source of truth for the entire software delivery processes.
