In Frost & Sullivan’s 2020 Global Cloud survey, 52% of the respondents said they have deployed Cloud IaaS and 42% said they currently use hybrid cloud. While cloud adoption continues to grow, enterprises have generally struggled to implement and maintain a secure, high-performing WAN that allows for efficient access to cloud-based applications across their user base. If you consider the distributed nature of enterprise applications, and now the increasingly distributed nature of employees working from home, the traditional branch networking method of backhauling traffic (from users and devices) to a centralized location is highly inefficient.
Furthermore, the rise in remote working and distributed users accessing cloud-hosted applications means that the enterprise perimeter is no longer limited to users within the company site. Think about it: if your applications are in the cloud, and the users are at home or at a branch location (spread across the globe), why is your organization’s security sitting at the headquarters location? The traditional model is time-consuming with subpar performance and a poor user experience. Secure Access Service Edge, or SASE, aims to address the need for a centralized, software-defined security architecture, when the apps and users are highly distributed. SASE combines the flexibility of SD-WAN with a full suite of virtual security services, all delivered from the cloud.
Please join VMware and Frost & Sullivan for this webinar to learn about:
• Market trends driving the business case for SASE
• The power of networking and security together
• How VMware delivers a cloud-native networking and security solution

Enterprise networks are on the verge of a major tipping point, driven by the shift from employees working at a corporate office to working from anywhere. Enterprises are quickly realizing that legacy network and security architectures are inadequate. They must evolve toward a unified networking and security service that increases scalability, agility, and security in a user and application environment that is now highly distributed, and mobile across the Internet. The need to provision and deliver new networking and security services in a matter of hours, not weeks or months, holds as much priority as the ability to reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). There is no question that the combination of cloud-based networking and security services that are global, context-driven, and flexible is fueling a wave of next-generation secure and optimized networking upgrades.

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.
Bonus: All registrants will receive a free white paper detailing the digital foundation needed in healthcare.

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.

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.
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.
