Sometimes if you just can't beat 'em, join 'em, right? A new report from AppleInsider via PC World says that Window Snyder, a former security head with Microsoft and Mozilla, had her first day with Apple on Monday.
The report noted that Apple is the "third browser-maker in the past five years that has employed Snyder," but did not give specifics on whether or not she would work on Safari or other technology for Apple.
While Internet Explorer did not make up the focus of her time at Microsoft, she was credited with developing the Blue Hat program, which started communications between developers at Redmond and outside security research teams.
During her time at Mozilla, it was noted that she carried a pun-ny title of "chief security something-or-other," and she took care of security for the Firefox web browser. Most of the Mozilla programmers worked on the open source software for free, but Snyder brought home a salary through Mozilla.
Snyder then left Mozilla in 2008 to take time to work on a project that she has "always been passionate about." She worked as a consultant for the past year.
