VMware SASE brings together industry-leading cloud networking with cloud security through a cloud-native, edge services platform. Its distinct advantages assist enterprises in their cloud, workforce, and application transformation initiatives.

Cloud-native by design, VMware SD-WAN and SASE leverage a global network of over 200 PoPs deployed by VMware and its partners that provide unparalleled self-healing access to major cloud and SaaS providers. The solution is available as a managed service backed by 285+ service providers worldwide or using a self-managed model.

The VMware SASE architecture combines networking and security services:
● VMware SD-WAN optimizes app performance over any WAN link. It delivers content across multiple transports using policy-based prioritization, intelligent traffic steering, continuous link monitoring, and automatic remediation.
● VMware Secure Access is a zero trust network access solution integrated with VMware Workspace One (unified endpoint management) for continuous and extensive security posture input into access control decisions. It offers multiple benefits over traditional VPN solutions to provide users with consistent, optimal and secure cloud application access.
● VMware Cloud Web Security leverages and integrates best-of-breed secure web gateway (SWG), cloud access security broker (CASB), data loss prevention (DLP), URL filtering, and threat protection into the SASE PoP to provide secure, direct, and optimal access to SaaS applications and Internet sites.
● VMware SD-WAN Client provides enterprise IT with an easy and secure remote access solution for workers anywhere that optimizes connections for speed and reliability.
● VMware Edge Network Intelligence is a vendor-agnostic AIOPs platform delivering rich user experience and providing artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML)-enabled visibility.

How we are different

● Enterprise agility: VMware's cloud-first solution enables workers and applications anywhere and provides organizations operational flexibility to adapt to change. With over 200 points of presence, applications are delivered to users reliably, quickly, and securely. The open architecture allows customers to adopt network and security functions on their own timeframe.
● Superior user experience: Even over a single link and degraded network conditions, an ideal user experience with your applications is delivered using Dynamic Multipath Optimization (DMPO). VMware SASE reduces latency by incorporating all network and security functions within a single cloud PoP to improve the user experience and productivity.
● Reduce security risks: VMware SASE incorporates Zero Trust principles into a comprehensive security suite to provide secure access to your applications. It reduces breach and compliance risks when workers access SaaS services and the Internet.
