Solution Selection Services

Kontex understands that there is more to selecting a solution than just choosing whatever is at the “top-right” of industry reports. Considerations should be made of existing capabilities, resource limitations, and the overall strategic goals of your organization. Otherwise, you may find that you have made a considerable investment in a solution that doesn’t meet your long-term needs.

Vendor Management Advisory

Our primary goal is to help you through the challenges of the solution selection process

Selecting a solution can be a daunting task for most organizations – objectively assessing new, unfamiliar technologies from aggressive technology vendors, while managing day-to-day operations can be a massive undertaking.

Leveraging our team’s deep industry experience implementing and managing a broad range of security technologies, we operate as an independent advisor to your organization. Our primary goal is to help you through the challenges of the solution selection process. We work closely with your organization to understand your needs and current landscape, which ensures you identify the best solution to maximize your investment.

Our Process

Leveraging our knowledge of information security technologies, we collaborate with your organization’s Security, IT Operations, and other stakeholders to understand their current requirements, and to help identify the small details which bring huge benefits and may otherwise be overlooked.

From this collaboration with your team, we work to define specific use cases and measurable requirements that will be used to form the basis of a balanced scorecard.

Leveraging independent research conducted by Gartner, Forrester, other industry publications, and coupled with our industry knowledge and experience, we create a shortlist of solutions that have the potential to meet your requirements.

We turn your requirements into a Request for Proposals (RFP) and we help manage the proposal and business case process, answer vendors questions, and organize demos of shortlisted. We can also work to implement proof of concept instances to test how the solutions perform within your organization.

We conduct a comparative analysis of capabilities of the solutions, complete the balanced scorecards, and proposals, and giving you the information needed to make an informed decision.
