While users may shift where they work—the office, home, or remotely—that won't change how they work. Users will expect connectivity to applications and data to be as simple and consistent from their home.
Real-time applications need lossless, low-latency connectivity to ensure an excellent user experience, and this performance must be consistent no matter where the application or the user is located.
Users need to be focused on their work, not figuring out the VPN. The best approach for securing distributed edge is a comprehensive one that covers the branch and remote worker scenarios yet follows the principles of Zero Trust.
Dell’Oro Group discusses the key drivers behind why hybrid work is here to stay, why traditional WAN and VPN approaches no longer work, and how enterprises can prepare for work-from-anywhere.
Enterprises need an SD-WAN solution for employees on the road, or when a hardware appliance is not feasible. VMware SD-WAN offers a first of its kind SD-WAN soft client that follows the principles of zero trust to extend the benefits of reliable, optimal, and secure connectivity for end user devices.
VMware and its partners provide over 150 points of presence (PoPs) around the world to simplify connectivity to the Cloud and SaaS. The PoPs have direct paths to cloud and SaaS providers, for low-latency handoff without the need for IT to deploy SD-WAN resources in cloud provider networks.
For customers who use VMware Workspace ONE for unified endpoint management, VMware Secure Access provides the ability for Workspace ONE users to connect securely while working remotely.
Maintaining a rich user experience with cloud applications is easy with VMware SD-WAN. In addition to collecting application performance information, VMware Edge Network Intelligence uses network statistics to understand and communicate the root cause.
