Apple has reportedly hired Naval Security Expert David Rice to be its Director of Global Security, according to All Things Digital.

With iPhones and iPads penetrating the enterprise in ever more impressive numbers, companies want to know they’re secure. Late last year Apple started working with Unisys to help it sell Apple products to corporations and government agencies, all of which are concerned about the security implications of iPhones and iPads running on their networks. Those who know Rice describe him as a deeply respected name in IT security circles who not only can speak the kind of language that makes CIOs comfortable, but can also back up that language with the skills and knowledge to match.

Rice is a 1994 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, has a master's degree in Information Warfare and Systems Engineering from the Naval Postgraduate School, served as a Global Network Vulnerability analyst for the National Security Agency, and served as a Special Duty Cryptologic officer for the Navy.
