"Enterprise computing is not only moving to the cloud at an amazing pace, but some of that compute is also moving to the edge - and the mobile device is by far the most ubiquitous edge device there is," he says.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco, Aisien discusses:

  • The factors driving mobile app security;
  • The need for deeper security integration in mobile apps;
  • Predictions for app security in 2019.

Aisien is CEO of Blue Cedar. He previously served as COO at Mocana, responsible for the mobile business. Prior to that, he was global product manager for Oracle's Fusion middleware. He also ran product, marketing and business development for Thor, a pioneer in identity management, which was acquired by Oracle.
