Ex-Mozilla security boss Window Snyder has joined Apple.
Snyder, who worked at Mozilla between 2006 and 2008, and is credited
with making Firefox's security response more professional, joins Apple
after a spell in consulting.
Prior to joining Mozilla, Snyder worked at Microsoft where she acted as
security lead on Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Windows Server
2003 and at security consultancy @stake.
Synder started work with Apple on Monday as senior security product
manager, IDG reports.
Apple has a reputation, mostly deserved, of not playing well with
security researchers who discover flaws in its technology. Snyder has a
proven track record of building bridges, so her recruitment has already
been welcomed as a positive step towards detente.
