VMware Secures Foundations of SEA’s Digital Infrastructure and Anywhere Workspaces

The sprint toward digital transformation has quickly expanded the threat landscape and attackers have seized the opportunity to exploit these the new vulnerabilities. To address this changing threat landscape, VMware announced innovations to better secure the world’s digital infrastructure and anywhere workspaces.

“Cyberattacks and breaches are perennial challenges for organizations, particularly so for those operating in Southeast Asia’s heterogenous business environment. As attack sophistication continues to evolve and threat actors look for more avenues to exploit, organizations need a new approach that is simpler, faster, and smarter with the resilience to help keep their anywhere workforces safe from cyberattacks,” said Sanjay K. Deshmukh, Vice President and Managing Director, Southeast Asia and Korea, VMware

These advancements include:

  • Simplifying Zero-Trust Security to Gain Better Visibility and Control of the Digital Infrastructure: This connected approach brings together critical user control points, devices, workloads and networks with the necessary data from all sources for a simpler, faster and smarter Zero-Trust strategy.
  • Better Securing the Anywhere Workspace Without Compromising Experience: VMware Anywhere Workspace brings together VMware Workspace ONE, VMware SASE, and VMware Carbon Black Cloud, empowering anywhere organizations to manage multi-modal employee experience, better secure the distributed edge, and automate the workspace in today’s new work environment.
  • Better Securing the Data Center Faster and More Intelligently: With the VMware NSX Service-defined Firewall, security teams can better protect the data center traffic across virtual, physical, containerized, and cloud workloads from internal threats and avoid damage from threats that make it past the network perimeter.
  • Better Securing Modern Applications and Cloud Workloads to Enable a Dynamic and Flexible Workspace: The VMware Modern Apps Connectivity solution offers a rich set of integrated application delivery services that enable operators to centrally manage end-to-end application traffic routing, resiliency, and security policies across multi-site environments and clouds.

Making Collaboration Simpler and Safer for Hybrid Workforces

Following the launch of VMware Anywhere Workspace last month, VMware is extending its vision to enable the future of work through its work with Zoom Video Communications, Inc. By bringing together the benefits of three innovative solutions – VMware Workspace ONE, VMware Carbon Black and VMware SASE Platform, the VMware Anywhere Workspace solution empowers today’s anywhere workforce by removing the friction that can exist between IT systems and employees. This creates better experiences and broader, more effective security.

Through this collaboration, VMware is working with Zoom to enable interoperability between VMware Anywhere Workspace and the Zoom collaboration platform to further improve ease of use, application and network performance, and security for hybrid work environments
