VMware has announced the launch of VMware Future Ready Workforce solutions to provide a safer user experience for the distributed workforce.
The Future Ready Workforce solutions combine VMware Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), Digital Workspace and Endpoint Security capabilities to help IT manage and optimize more secure access to any app, on any cloud, from any device.
The VMware SASE Platform is claimed to converge cloud networking, cloud security and Zero Trust network access with web security to deliver scalability for enterprises of all sizes.
Further, the VMware SD-WAN global network has now been expanded to more than 2,700 cloud service nodes across 130 points of presence (POPs).
VMware Secure Access is a ZTNA service that combines VMware Workspace ONE and VMware SD-WAN into a single, cloud-hosted offering that enables more secure, optimized, and high-performance access for remote and mobile users.
The new VMware Cloud Web Security service will integrate Menlo Security’s secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access service broker (CASB), Data Loss Prevention, sandbox, and remote browser isolation capabilities natively into the VMware SASE solution.
VMware and Zscaler also announced an expanded alliance to enable enterprises to combine VMware SD-WAN and VMware Secure Access with Zscaler Internet Access into a SASE solution.
The VMware NSX Firewall is a stateful Layer 7 firewall that will be integrated into the VMware SASE Platform for cloud-delivered firewall as a service in both single-tenanted and multi-tenanted deployment options.
Moreover, VMware announced additional Workspace ONE and Workspace Security offerings available to effectively better secure devices.
