Rapid patching and adoption of updated software has long been a "must do" security imperative. But many organizations have yet to master the patch-management challenge by getting fixes for flaws into place rapidly, as most recently demonstrated by the WannaCry ransomware attack, which compromised systems running outdated versions of Windows, notes Jack Huffard, president and COO of Tenable.

Huffard co-founded Tenable Network Security 2002 - together with Renaud Deraison and Ron Gula - and is responsible for driving global revenue growth and leading Tenable's corporate strategy and growth. Previously, he was the director of corporate development for Enterasys Networks and held management and sales positions at John Hancock and Marriott Corp.
