Walter was Weyland-Yutani, but you could argue Ash was more like Walter anyways, just programmed to bring back the specimen rather than protect the crew. It could have just been the way Ian Holm played it as well.

Just couldn't see Walter strangling a human or being provocative/antagonistic towards humans in any way. Ash seemed to change personality when he was outed, which seems a more devious trait more similar to David than Walter.

Perhaps he was programmed to be a spy. Illegal pergaps, but by that time there's nothing stopping them from making a one unit ghost with little history on board.

There's no reason to assume design specs stay static over time.  Just as Walter is different to David, Ash is different to Walter.

Ash was built by hyperdyne

In future prequels, David becomes leader of Weyland-Yutani and creates Ash to retrieve his creation.

Irony twitter is that way

What do we learn about the fusion of Weyland and Yutani in Covenant?

It's pretty clear Ash has been tweaked to do whatever he is ordered by the company.

When Ash got violent I always thought it was really hard for him to do, like he is going against his primary coding because of the special order and basically ceases to function properly (if you watch the scene he face is contorting and he's sweating blood and generally flipping out). His strength is shown then he grabs Parker's chest.

Yep, I think whatever tampering they did with him was conflicting with his base programming

^ This. Ash was pretty duplicitous and knew much more than he led on; "Well, as I said, I'm still... collating, actually, but uh, I have confirmed that he's got an outer layer of protein polysaccharides."  :D
