Who is Sun Management?
Sun Management is a leading security solutions provider in the Mid-Atlantic and Federal Arena. We position ourselves as a mercenary sales force for internet startup companies. The principals, Jim and John Vanderzon, brothers, are both ex-engineers who enjoy the challenge of discovering the start-up company that has created and developed a solutions paradigm shift. The internet, obviously, is still evolving at a rapid pace and, as such, new problems are constantly arising. To truly be on the leading edge of technology, it is critical to be both selective and educated.
Sun Management limits product support to no more than 10 technologies at a time. This is important on a few levels. First, most of our competitors carry 30 to 50 to even 100s of products. How can you be excellent at 30 technologies? 100 technologies? Not possible. Sun Management has at least 2 engineers certified/trained to support each product in our product portfolio. Also, no Sun engineer is expected to be knowledgeable on more than 3 products at any time. Leading edge technology requires in depth engineering support to be successful.
Validation of this claim can be found in
Palo Alto Networks
Sun was the first VAR in the world, sold the first 3 deals in the world and has trained over 1,500 engineers/operations on PANW since 2010
Sun sold AireSpace wireless for 2 years prior to it being purchased by Cisco
Sun sold IP email security for 3 years prior to it being purchased by Cisco
Sun sold IB DNS for 6 years before they went public
This commitment to focus and excellence can also be found in Sun’s MSSP offering. If you look at the majority of other MSSP providers you will, again, find they tout supporting many varying security technologies, all things to all people. Sun’s MSSP offering is built on PANW’s Gartner Leading Magic Quadrant SOAR, Demisto, and PANW’s Gartner Leading Magic Quadrant NextGen Firewall. We are not good at every technology, we are excellent at a few technologies.
