As enterprises embrace digital transformation and support employees working from anywhere, securing network traffic traversing between the edge and the cloud is critical. Zscaler and VMware have partnered to enable enterprises to adopt a SASE framework that securely connects any user to any application—across any location. The combination of VMware SD-WAN™, Intel architecture and the Zscaler Zero Trust Exchange provides enterprises with high quality application performance while keeping users, devices, and data secure by automating threat response, enforcing posture control, and providing a single place to manage network security configuration across the entire organization.
