About Troy Tate
Greetings Technology Compatriots!
Welcome to IT Trenches blog. This is a blog intended to reflect the challenges of a real global data network and security manager. Data network communications and information security will be the combined focus. Lots to cover and the challenges are always amazing.
My career began in the US Navy Nuclear power program. Once I completed my duty as an instructor I was involved in implementing a NetWare 3.1 LAN. This began my quest in data networking to defend that “It’s Not the Network!” (a very good advertising tagline used by Network Physics – now part of OPNet Technologies) when problems arise. I have been a database programmer (long live Advanced Revelation & RBasic). My current responsibilities are managing global data network communications and security at a manufacturing company.
I also have the following certifications: CNE, Security+, Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH).
Your time spent reading and sharing is greatly appreciated. Let’s be good network citizens together. Practice safe networking!
