VMworld spotlight: Security with SASE

In today’s post we are highlighting two great choices for your VMworld agenda: a VMware SASE overview focusing on app performance and security, and a look into VMware Cloud Web Security, a VMware SASE service that protects the distributed workforce against cyber threats.   

Abe Ankumah, Senior Director of Product Marketing & Partnerships, VMware and Ciaran Roche, CTO of VMware partner Coevolve, will present VMware SASE: Up Your Game on App Performance and Network Security [EDG2707].

  • We live in an ever-evolving digital world. Applications are moving out of data centers to the cloud. Devices are proliferating, with IoT and data volumes growing at a rapid rate. Users are accessing distributed apps from anywhere (home, office or away). Legacy WAN and VPN architectures are no longer adequate to meet evolving business needs. The inception of secure access service edge (SASE) closes this architecture gap by bringing together networking, security and edge services, and delivering next-level performance and protection from the cloud. Join this session to learn about VMware SASE and how our cloud native, open, extensible platform helps customers enrich a remote workforce experience while providing uncompromised protection with an end-to-end zero trust approach in the distributed world with a changing threat landscape.

VMware Senior Marketing Manager Shefali Chinni, VMware Marketing Director Karl Brown, and Jeff Bradbury, Senior Marketing Director at VMware partner Hughes will present Help Protect Anywhere Workforce with VMware Cloud Web Security [EDG1168].

  • Today’s Anywhere Workforce requires safe and reliable access to SaaS and web applications. VMware Cloud Web Security is a cloud-hosted security service of VMware SASE that leverages VMware SD-WAN and VMware Secure Access to offer protection against a changing threat landscape while providing visibility, control, and compliance. You can reduce the attack surface with URL filtering and content filtering, protect against known and zero-day malware attacks, and gain visibility and control into SaaS applications with cloud access security broker (CASB) and data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities. Cloud Web Security is one component of VMware Anywhere Workspace solutions that deliver secure, seamless access to the Anywhere Workforce. We will showcase the ease with which you can configure, manage and monitor networking and security policies using our single pane of management.
