How We Choose Network Security Tools
Networking and cybersecurity are complex and require sophisticated network tools managed by expert engineers. Sun Management’s focus is to provide our clients with the best network security and storage tools available and unequaled engineering expertise without ruining your bottom line.
First and foremost, Sun Management limits our products set to 10 manufacturers. This provides a few immediate benefits. Each Sun Management engineer is tasked with knowing and achieving certification on just 3 product lines. This allows our engineers to achieve strong knowledge of each product they are asked to support from design to implementation to operational support.
With a limit of 10 products, we, as a company, have a clear view of the choices we have made around products/solutions. If we carried 30 to 50 to 100 products as many VARs do, there is little chance we could provide knowledgeable engineering around each product. Also, if one of the products is not selling after 6 months, we have probably made the wrong selection. Again, this would be much more challenging with the noise around 30 to 50 products. We prefer to be excellent at a few things, not average at many.
