Join Our IT Hero Awards 2022

Each year, leading up to System Administrator Appreciation Day, Lansweeper celebrates the work of system administrators around the world. During the SysAdmin Day Awards, you can nominate a sysadmin or a whole IT team to get the recognition they deserve, and also receive a charity donation in their name. Who is your sysadmin? Why do they deserve recognition? Let us know!

What are the IT Hero Awards?

Friday, July the 29th is System Administrator Appreciation Day, a perfect occasion to acknowledge the work of system administrators everywhere. But we find that one day is simply not enough to celebrate their work. That is why, leading up to this special day, Lansweeper hosts the annual IT Hero Awards. During this event, we invite you to nominate your IT hero(es). These are people who have reached new heights as system administrators by harnessing the power of IT management. Maybe they overcame a difficult challenge, or maybe they did something exceptional, or maybe they are just always there to help. Heroes come in many shapes and sizes, so do not be afraid to apply! 

What's in it for you?

We will be spotlighting both the nominees and the winners during the virtual Lansweeper User Event from 28-29 July (more information on this event is to follow soon). Your IT hero will get the attention he or she deserves. Aside from fame and acclaim, the nominees and winners also receive various prizes.

1st prize:

  • 1000$ voucher to an online cybersecurity training platform
  • 1500$ Charity donation to a Charity in your name
  • 1 year Fing Premium License
  • LS Swag & goodies
  • Digital certificate as 'IT Hero of 2022'

2nd Prize

  • 1000$ Charity donation to a Charity in your name
  • 1 year Fing Premium License
  • LS Swag & goodies
  • Digital certificate as 'IT Hero of 2022'

3rd Prize

  • 500$ Charity donation to a Charity in your name
  • 1 year Fing Premium License
  • LS Swag & goodies
  • Digital certificate as 'IT Hero of 2022'

Who are we looking for?

The theme for this year's awards is Cybersecurity. The world is in a strange place, first we had covid, accelerating the work from home by at least 10 years, which created unique challenges, especially related to cybersecurity. Now we have a war in Europe and we are seeing more cyberterrorism than ever before. We want to know how you've been using Lansweeper to secure your organization. For instance, do you know somebody who:

  • helped the sysadmin community in some way,
  • successfully dealt with or mitigated the results of a cyberattack,
  • completed a big project for which he or she deserves recognition,
  • did something against all odds, or
  • achieved something special?

Then don't hesitate to apply!

What is next?
