Secure SD-WAN with Check Point and VMware: A Case Study
Assured performance and security are among the key considerations for the organizations while they migrate to the cloud. While cloud-delivered applications offer a myriad of benefits, including agility, accessibility, economy of scale, and ease of usage, they multiply the risk of cyber-attacks and performance degradation thanks to the very benefits of the Internet.
Check Point and VeloCloud, now part of VMware, have joined forces to enable organizations to enjoy the best performance of SaaS-based applications without worrying about the security of the data in motion over the Internet or hybrid WAN.
In this upcoming webinar, we will provide an overview of this integrated solution and provide insights into how a leading specialty chemicals provider achieved desired application performance and security at their branch offices while migrating from traditional WAN to secure SD-WAN. We will also discuss key benefits of the solution, including:
· Simplified branch IT with cloud-delivered SD-WAN and real-time threat prevention
· Enhanced performance and security without the complexity and maintenance of legacy infrastructure
· Improved economics of implementation and efficiency of administrators

Enterprises continue to adopt the cloud and embrace a multicloud strategy. Multicloud brings benefits including agility, flexibility, performance and cost savings – but creates management complexities and operational challenges. Today’s enterprise WAN network is not suitable for connectivity to the cloud, let alone multiple clouds. Connecting workloads from multiple clouds through the data-center WAN edge creates bottlenecks. This causes deployment complexity, inconsistent network performance, and expensive connectivity. Enterprises need to consider a WAN transformation and adopt SD-WAN, to help facilitate multicloud deployments while simplifying WAN infrastructure and reducing connectivity costs.
Join us in this webinar to learn how the VMware SD-WAN solution facilitates a seamless network transformation providing a smooth multicloud onramp with optimized and secure connectivity, eliminating performance degradation and enabling the best user experience, all while making it cost-effective for enterprise organizations.

Health system CIOs have had to rethink how to continue delivering care to those suffering from COVID-19 and the millions battling other serious illness and disease. Prior to the pandemic, care delivery already posed challenges to expanding, heterogeneous healthcare organizations. Points of care delivery are diverse. Different care specialties require different technology infrastructures. As the home itself becomes a point of continuous care delivery through active and passive remote monitoring technologies, a consistent patient experience and reliable, high-quality connectivity are critical.
In this forum, CIOs will discuss the specific challenges they’ve faced (like policy and care at the edge hurdles) and what they anticipate next steps to be. This webinar is a unique opportunity to learn firsthand as CIOs, policy experts, and technologists explore the evolving adoption of value-based care and enabling technologies like telehealth, and how their various elements come together.

Tolly benchmarked the quality of service and remediation capabilities of VMware SD-WAN to improve the end user experience for VoIP and work from home (WFH) applications. They found that VMware SD-WAN can remediate packet loss and deliver a high-quality experience, even under adverse network conditions. The results showed that there’s an improvement of up to 45% in the quality of a VoIP call with a 2% packet loss. In addition, in a WFH environment, the results showed an improved download time by up to 71%.

Business requirements are evolving to deliver any-user, any-device connectivity to any cloud, and any-application. This demands a digital transformation that is spanning distributed edge, data center, and cloud, and is enabled by a new digital foundation. The legacy WAN and security architecture in the middle of this transformation is obsolete and must undergo a drastic change to be part of the new digital foundation. Customers are rapidly adopting a new SASE architecture model predicted by Gartner.
As a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for WAN Edge Infrastructure in 2018 and 2019, VMware is positioned to enable organizations to transform their WAN edge, to build a new digital foundation for new application adoption, and to enable your work-from-anywhere initiatives.
Join this session to learn how VMware’s network transformation vision, along with its unique cloud gateways and SASE PoPs, delivers a SASE platform with intrinsic security, including ZTNA, for organizations embracing cloud and SaaS.

Secure access service edge (SASE, a term coined by Gartner) is seen as the next wave of evolution for SD-WAN, bringing together the traffic optimizing power that SD-WAN offers with intrinsic security functionality. No longer just a vision, vendors are adopting it left and right and making it available to customers to derive further value from their networks and elevate the experience for all. But what does SASE really mean to these end users, to people who have transitioned to working from home? Is it all it’s cracked up to be? Are there implications we need to consider? In this webinar, founder and principal analyst of ZK Research Zeus Kerravala discusses the merits of SASE and why businesses should embrace it while also looking to broaden its scope.

What keeps healthcare CIOs up at night? Fundamental changes are combining to drive interoperability, complexity, and security challenges to the top of their action lists.
- Very active vertical and horizontal integration of new healthcare delivery providers into large and growing healthcare systems, driving a dynamic environment requiring a near constant flow of new users, new platforms, and new points of integration.
- Growing number of connected devices and data systems used to facilitate healthcare delivery, creating its own unique connectivity and security issues for these platforms, while also impacting the broader health system’s IT design and operations.
- Points of care are more geographically dispersed, even into the home. All these points of care have vastly different infrastructures, creating complex orchestration and interoperability challenges.
In this webinar, we seek to examine these broad drivers of change, and relate them to specific use cases reflecting the challenges and possible solutions to the interoperability and security needs of the modern healthcare organization.
Jaspreet Bhatia, Product Manager at VeloCloud, now part of VMware
The increasing adoption of cloud services makes traditional backhauling—along with its centralized security stack—obsolete. Organizations today rely heavily on cloud-delivered applications to effectively serve their employees and customers across locations beyond their enterprise infrastructure. However, the quality of experience and application performance for the end user primarily depend on the quality of the network connecting users to applications deployed on- or off-cloud.
Further, with so many options for security, mid-mile, analytics, compute, IaaS, and network exchanges, SD-WAN needs to be intelligent to selectively steer traffic to these clouds based on each business use case.
This webinar describes the comprehensive set of capabilities and common features that VMware SD-WAN™ by VeloCloud® offers to drive your multicloud strategy. Learn how VMware SD-WAN delivers optimal performance for applications no matter where they are deployed, without compromising payload security.
VMware SD-WAN™ simplifies branch WAN networking by automating deployment and improving performance over private, broadband Internet and LTE links for today's increasingly distributed enterprises, as well as service providers.
