More about VMware SD-WAN
SD-WAN decouples network software from the underlying transport. This basic idea has freed untold numbers of enterprises from being bound to expensive, traditional technologies such as MPLS, allowing them to choose a transport, or a combination or transports, that best fits their needs.
Award-winning VMware SD-WAN provides:
- Application quality assurance that ensures the performance and availability of mission-critical applications wherever they’re consumed
- Operational simplicity via the VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator, a single-pane management solution
- Intrinsic security that unifies network, endpoint, identity, and cloud security control points
- A cloud-first approach that simplifies and speeds connections to cloud and SaaS-based applications
Moving to SASE
As more business applications are consumed as-a-service and workloads shift to the cloud – combined with many employees working from home or anywhere – there’s a greater need to put security where the users are. Secure access service edge (SASE) answers that call, delivering cloud-based security as a service regardless of the end user’s location.
VMware SASE™ features a unique network of global points of presence (PoPs) that speed access to cloud and SaaS applications, while providing intrinsic security. The VMware SASE Platform brings together VMware SD-WAN, VMware Secure Access, VMware Cloud Web Security™, VMware NSX Cloud Firewall and VMware Edge Network Intelligence™.
