Microsoft has hired security expert Mark Curphey, the former Chief Technology Officer of SourceClear, who is bringing with him to Microsoft the “Oxygen” security platform and security-lifecycle applications he had been developing.
Curphey is joining the company as a member of the Application, Consulting and Engineering (ACE) team. Microsoft noted Curphey’s hiring on the ACE Team Blog on October 8.
Curphey founded OWASP, the Open Web Application Project. He left FoundStone, a security consultancy purchased by McAfee in 2004, to form SourceClear. After realizing getting venture funding in the UK would be tough, Curphey said he decided to join forces with Microsoft to build the platform.
