BlackBerry hires David Kleidermacher as Chief Security Officer8
Kleidermacher has more than 20 years of product engineering and is well-versed in operating systems, mobile security and the Internet of Things. He comes to BlackBerry from Green Hills Software where he served as Chief Technology Officer. Considering the areas of his expertise, it should not be a surprise that Kleidermacher hold patents in IoT technology, software development and mobile security.
Besides the previously mentioned tasks, Kleidermacher will oversee security research and product development at BlackBerry. While working at Green Hills, he was the leader of the team that developed the INTEGRITY high reliability real-time operating system which received the highest security level ever obtained for an OS (even receiving clearance from the FAA). Kleidermacher sounds like a great (and natural) addition to the BlackBerry team.
