Since the launch of our original LIVEcommunity, the state of the web and user expectations have changed significantly. At the same time, the challenges faced by security and IT professionals have seen a massive shift. Now, more than ever, fast access to quick applicable solutions is critical to addressing security threats. Perhaps even more critical is having access to a peer-to-peer community of intelligent and collaborative network security and IT professionals all working together to address similar challenges. There is no question that thousands of minds working together, creating and sharing ideas to counter security challenges is far more powerful than a single engineer working alone.
With these key factors in mind, we’ve made some significant changes to LIVEcommunity. We believe it will help you find the information you need and connect with over 100,000 of the most progressive IT and security professionals, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We hope you like what you see and feel inspired to connect, engage, and learn more. Read some of our featured articles, post a question, or better yet, answer a question! Let us know what you think. In the end, this is your community, and we are here to make it as useful as we can for you.
