You could say that John Pescatore, a vice president and research fellow at Gartner, owns and controls the venture capital pipeline for security. In many ways, Pescatore's work determines enterprise spending at a very high level, influencing the delivery of Internet-facing products.

It's never easy to come up with a definitive list of IT professionals with the most influence on the way we secure desktops, networks and mobile devices. And limiting the list to 15 hackers is a near-impossible task, but, in my mind, these are the folks who stand out today as stirring the imagination and forcing us to rethink our approach to security in an always-on world.
