There’s been lots of buzz about the tsunamis of change hitting IT. Talk of pivoting to the cloud, the growing mobile workforce, BYOD, and the Internet of Things (IoT) light up tech conferences and generate big headaches for IT.
So what are these tsunamis of change? The biggest one is being driven by #GenMobile – mobile-savvy users who rely on cloud-based business apps for every aspect of their work and personal lives. These mobile workers demand anytime, anywhere access to the network and as they bring more devices to work, they keep adding volume to your network.
Embracing this new normal means rethinking your enterprise network. The mobile workforce will require that you move towards a mobile-first network strategy while meeting some NAC challenges head on. This means defining “who” your network is since you no longer know “where” your network is.
So that leads to the big question. Do you have the right technology in place to meet today’s network challenges? We want to hear how you have embraced these challenges. Do you have a secret ClearPass recipe that you use to handle threats? Have you gone the route of the all-wireless workplace?
How to Enter
We want to hear how you have prepared your network to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

--If you are unable to receive the gift due to company restrictions you could always give it to someone else.
HTM Community Contest starts at 5am PST on November 9th, and ends at 9pm PST on November 30th. Selection of winners will be a two-step process: a combination of the Kudos on the Airheads Community and thorough final selection by the judging panel who will look at the accuracy, creativity, and quality of the article. We kindly ask that you do not give kudos to a single entry under the guise of multiple accounts. Any abuse will result in immediate disqualification.
The amount of kudos counted will be the amount of kudos given. If the submission has 40 kudos... then the post will receive 40 kudos towards the contest. If you impress someone with a kudo weight of 3... you receive 3 kudos.
We do ask that your solution be an actual implementation that you have been a part of. We are interested in all implementation scenarios that are not classified.
