"The big challenge with securing the entire chain is the integration of all the pieces - hackers exploit the cracks in those elements," he says. "How do you deal with that in a meaningful way, at scale? The number of devices and the multiple ways in which this can happen in mobile changes the dimension of that risk to the enterprise, simply because of the number of devices that it can happen to."

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Gandhi also shares insights on:

  • Common pain-points for security practitioners when dealing with mobile;
  • How hackers are circumventing security measures;
  • The differences between the Asian security market and the global landscape.

Gandhi has over 20 years of experience in the management consulting, technology and financial services industries in the U.S., U.K. and India. He focuses on blending finance, strategy, technology and operations into a portfolio to drive performance via a strong focus on metrics.
