Build a business case: developing custom apps

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.

While at Mozilla, Snyder called on Apple to be more open about how it handles security bugs. ®
