About the SunWeb Portal

The SunWeb portal is the primary means through which business information and services are delivered to Sun employees and is the standard way the Sun workforce collaborates and shares knowledge. The primary goal of the SunWeb portal is to provide content and services to a global workforce anywhere, anytime, and on any device. SunWeb is continuously evaluated and enhanced to meet that goal.

The SunWeb portal provides services to internal users around the world, which includes employees, contractors, interns, and anyone with a valid Sun ID. Users access email, calendars, applications, collaboration tools, and a wide variety of content sources such as news and blogs.

The following image shows the main page users might see when they log in.

SunWeb can be accessed from a computer or device connected to Sun's corporate network (SWAN) or from a computer or device not connected to SWAN using the public Internet and secure remote access.
