Happy SysAdminDay!

Today is System Administrator Appreciation Day – the day we say thanks to all the unsung heroes of IT.


This week, Sophos has been giving away a shedload of socks to sysadmins, not to mention a throne of epic proportions to one lucky winner (to be announced later today).

But the prizes don’t stop there.

Leave a comment on our poll article and we’ll send a survival kit to the authors of the five comments that receive the highest number of upvotes on the page.

And, if you’re not a sysadmin and you’re wondering what they actually do, we spoke to one of our very own sysadmins to get a run down of a typical day at Sophos.
