Check Point Software has been in business since 1993, and they presently have a large coverage of IT security devices and services they offer for all business verticals.

Hey guys, here we present to you The History of the Internet (Part 2), which is again intended to be brief, gripping and necessarily cursory. Today we start in the 1990s, with the invention of what became the basis for the World Wide Web - and, despite certain rumors, Al Gore wasn't really involved.?
In the latest episode of The Geek and the Sales Guy, our two not-quite-legendary misfits end, once and for all, the argument as to which of them is more suited to run the world by taking the ?Why is it that..??-Off challenge, they reveal the not-so-exciting things to have happened down the years on Rupert?s birthday and why Scotland and Bavaria are basically the same. They also expose which swear words are acceptable any time of day, some little known facts about Twitter and, of course, what was actually in that strange-looking case??
You Monitor Something Amazing and Far Out? This is Your Chance to Shine! When we first asked our community about their unusual usage scenarios back in 2013, we couldn?t have dreamt-up the examples we received from users around the globe. We now know that our users track jackpot values in casinos, keep track of the temperature of blood fridges in hospitals, and even measure the water salinity and PH values of a prawn farm! Sounds crazy and awesome at the same time, doesn?t it? We are sure this isn?t the end of the story.
Keeping an eye on the network is an important job. Many major software and networking companies offer high-end network management suites, and high-end prices to go with them.

All datacenters look alike? Hmmm, check our list and think again! Running a data center can be a lonely job, and IT professionals need to make difficult decisions every day. So why not step back and take a look at where some of these guys work and at how bizarre those places look sometimes? Data centers can be unique, strange, innovative and often trendsetting. For the data centers below, it?s hard to argue that the processes inside the data centers are the most interesting aspect. As we?re about to see, it?s sometimes the data center itself that?s fascinating.
