"The way to move forward is in two different ways," he says. "You need to look for solutions that are not tied to one particular engine or approach and have flexibility. The second thing you need to do is find solutions that integrate with other parts of your security ecosystem."

In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Healthcare Security Summit in New York, Patel discusses:

  • Emerging email threats in healthcare;
  • Why some email detection systems are too slow;
  • What to look for in an email security solution.

Patel is strategic technology consultant at Mimecast. He previously held management positions at EMC, Iron Mountain, Endeca Technologies and Phase Forward.
