“We are excited to partner with VMware because leaders select leaders,” said Jay Chaudhry, chairman and CEO of Zscaler. “By integrating our purpose-built cloud security with VMWare’s cloud-native SD-WAN solution, our customers can focus on outcomes instead of managing infrastructure and point products to secure their workforce.”
Under the partnership, Zscaler will align the next-generation networking and security capabilities from its offerings as well as VMware, to help large global enterprises simplify the adoption of a complete Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) architecture and more effectively implement Zero Trust security.
The Zscaler-VMware partnership will provide cloud-delivered networking and security to serve the needs of the largest enterprise customers. The companies will also offer enhanced interoperability of products to simplify deployment and operation of best-of-breed security and networking infrastructure. The Joint technical, sales and marketing engagement, through the partnership, will accelerate support of customers.
“By partnering with Zscaler, we will bring simplicity and scale to securing a modern, future ready workforce,” said Sanjay Poonen, chief operating officer, Customer Operations of VMware. “Together we will help customers adopt a cloud-centric network and security architecture that connects and protects users, applications, and data, anywhere in the world.”
