Apple’s Chief of Security and vice-president John Theriault has left the company after facing a long criticism over the illegitimate leak-out of iPhone 4 prototype. Before a month of his departure, Apple – world’s largest technology company- had to go through immense criticism over the miss and track down of its iPhone4 prototype.

In fact, John Theriault was a Special Agent at Federal Bureau of Investigation, came to Apple from Pfizer in 2007 and had spent a decade as chief of security at Pfizer before moving to Apple.

The incident – responsible for Theriault dismissal – was first occurred in March of 2010, when an Apple employee had lost a prototype device in Peninsula bar. Brian Hogan, who found the device, managed to sell it to Gizmodo – who leaked the device information online – by the help of Robert Sage.

In October this year, Brian Hogan and Robert Sage, had found indicted in the illegal involvement and has received one year of probation, 40 hrs of community service, and payment of $250 in restitution to Apple.

Recently, the company yet again lost the iPhone 5 prototype (Now known as iPhone 4S) in a San Francisco bar, and later, police informed them that they had traced the device in a residence. When police raided the home, along with Apple’s two employees, home owner Segio Calderon denied to have any information about the device. However, he accepted his presence in the same bar where the prototype was, reportedly, lost.

Due to such serious challenges regarding its unreleased products, Apple had put a job vacancy on its website for people, who could efficiently manage the risk associated with the products.

It has been said that Theriault, who was currently responsible for all of the Apple’s security operations, was leading an anti-counterfeit team in China in 2008, where Apple’s pirated products were getting manufactured and marketed extensively.

Since last two years, Apple’s unreleased products are facing great risk of illegitimate leak-out and need new people and a great administration to manage the risk efficiently.

In last couple of years, John Theriault – as the chief of security officer – has faced immense criticism over the security issues at Apple. And at the time, when a new CEO is reshaping the company’s operations by his own way, John Theriault has might understood that it’s the right time to move on.

It would be interestingly to know how World’s best brand secures its future products from all such misshapes, especially when people can’t live with it.
