Microsoft Nabs Anti-Virus Ace from SymantecMicrosoft Nabs Anti-Virus Ace from Symantec

Veteran virus-hunter Vincent 'Vinny' Gullotto has joined Microsoft to head its Security Research and Response team, a move that adds instant credibility to the software maker's push into the Internet security market. Gullotto, an anti-virus ace who served stints at McAfee and Symantec, will be general manager of the team, which handles all aspects of malware research and response.

The Security Research and Response team is not to be confused with the 10-year-old MSRC (Microsoft Security Response Center) that serves as hub for the company's response to security incidents and software flaw warnings.

Microsoft isn't shedding much light on Gullotto's hiring. In a statement sent to eWEEK, a spokesperson said the Redmond, Wash., company is "very excited that Vincent Gullotto will be joining Microsoft as the general manager of Security Research & Response and looks forward to working with him in his new role."
