Houses United for the Holidays

 

Winter is here. IT is your watch and monitoring is your great battle. Threats live beyond the firewall. End users are out there and…hold up. Actually, we’re thinking you just skip all the toils, anguish, and revenge, and get straight to ruling your environment with a unified solution.

 

Arm yourself for a storm of slowdowns, an ambush of alerts, or even a dance with downtime—but let’s not drag this out for another season, shall we? Wield the power of an integrated solution this winter and use your alliances to help with improved performance across your networks, systems, and applications.

 

Start the mission, triumph, and make this your crowning achievement.

‘Tis the season… for the best shopping deals! From managing more distributed environments, working with more software-defined and automated solutions, to perhaps even experimenting with artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics, technology needs are constantly changing. We know most enterprise IT hardware and software don’t get the Black Friday treatment (2-for-1 routers, anyone?) but as we approach two of the biggest shopping days of the year, and in the spirit of great holiday deals, we want to know: what’s on your must-have technology list?

 

We want to know the hottest tech picks of 2019. What do you have your eye on for the year ahead? Maybe you’re exploring API proxy services, cloud-hosted databases, or a 400GbE network. Alternatively, if you’re not in the market for anything new, what technology is getting the upgrade treatment or being retired altogether (on-prem file server—gone but never forgotten)?

 

Tell us your Top Tech Picks by November 16, 2018, and we’ll give you 250 THWACK® points in exchange.

 

MISSION STATUS: COMPLETED

Great dueling, THWACKsters!

 

Your showdown was a tough one, but we told you we'd have your back. No one goes alone when you've got great security products behind you.

 

You may have scared off those pesky black hats this time, but mark my words...they'll certainly try to have another pass at you. Good thing you'll be ready for them!

 

Saddle up, we'll see you in the next mission!

THWACKcamp "The Mission"

 

When you throw a two-day, worldwide virtual IT learning event, you’d better have some interesting material to cover. This year, to satisfy thousands of attendees, we pushed ourselves to find those IT hot buttons, engaged in valuable conversations with industry experts (including our own), swizzled in some thought leadership, and showcased new product introductions—all the stuff we hoped technology pros like you would find interesting.

 

Now, if you happened to miss this year’s THWACKcamp™, or even if you attended, we’ve built this month’s mission around all 18 sessions worth of IT goodness. Sample each session, answer the weekly questions, and you could walk away with one of our latest prizes.

 

Time for all you THWACKademics to get busy. Let’s get this mission started!
