Companies VMware i Zoom announced in early June a collaboration that will enable better and safer use of Zoom for meetings in hybrid business environments. The collaboration between the two industry leaders has resulted in interoperability between the recently announced VMware Anywhere Workspace and the Zoom Team Collaboration Platform, with the goal of further simplifying usage, improving application and network performance, and improving security.
A survey commissioned by VMware found that 61% of respondents see teleworking as a prerequisite rather than a privilege, while over 90% rely on their employers to provide them with the technology and tools they need to do the job successfully. Last year gave a dramatic incentive to work remotely, and showed that the future of work is dynamic, with a workforce independent of location, which can work from anywhere, whenever, and however it wants.
The VMware Anywhere Workspace solution helps employees, no matter where they work from, by removing the friction that can occur between IT systems and employees. In this way, better user experiences and more comprehensive and efficient security are enabled. VMware Anywhere Workspace is already available, and combines the benefits of three innovative solutions – VMware Workspace ONE, VMware Carbon Black Cloud and VMware SASE. In collaboration with industry leaders such as Zoom, VMware provides complete interoperability through its Anywhere Workspace solution – for stronger support for employees in hybrid work environments.
“The way we work has changed forever. Now that companies have seen the benefits of teleworking, they want to do more than simply support the concept, ”said Shankar Iyer, senior VP and general manager, End-User Computing, VMware. “Employees expect identical experience in cooperation and use of communication tools from any location. VMware works with industry leaders, such as Zoom, to shape the future of work with interoperable solutions that provide an exceptional and more secure user experience – in the office, at home or anywhere else. ”
“As companies begin to open their physical offices, a hybrid model of work is very likely. That’s why companies have to prepare for both scenarios – employees working remotely, with a lot of employees returning to offices, “said Brendan Ittelson, CTO at Zoom. “The combined experience that VMware can provide for Zoom environments will help employees be more productive and IT more efficient and faster.”
VMware and Zoom solve major problems from anywhere
Zoom’s video communication platform is very stable even under the most demanding network conditions. However, with a workforce located in different locations, users and data can be anywhere, meaning they connect via the public Internet, from devices that may or may not be owned or operated by the company. The combination of VMware Anywhere Workspace and Zoom creates stronger and more resilient organizations, helping them improve insights, user experience, and security:
Improved insights and troubleshooting: By enabling greater insight into the networks and devices on which Zoom users are located, VMware Anywhere Workspace makes IT teams more responsive and efficient. VMware Edge Network Intelligence works with Zoom through a downloadable application on the Zoom App Marketplace and proactively identifies and resolves issues through complete access to the Zoom end user environment. Edge Network Intelligence can provide insight into the network from a device perspective, tracking its wireless status, Internet stability, gateway connectivity, and other factors that can affect performance. Through AIOps, the IT team can get the insight and full context they need to determine the baseline user experience at the company, location, device, operating system that the client uses, and more – all of this automatically.
Optimized experience: With support for the multimodal employee experience implied in a hybrid work environment, combining VMware Anywhere Workspace with Zoom provides users with exceptional experience and stable performance on any device, from any location, over any network. Zoom interoperability with VMware SD-WAN, part of the VMware SASE platform, enables a better user experience through automatic identification and prioritization of Zoom platform applications, improved network performance thanks to unique Dynamic Multi Path Optimization (DMPO) and accelerated network traffic transfer to Zoom data centers . Optimized experience works even in work-from-home situations where there are many non-business applications and countless smart home devices
Enhanced security: VMware Anywhere Workspace provides more comprehensive and efficient security for organizations using Zoom from a variety of locations. VMware Workspace ONE provides conditional access to corporate Zoom accounts and meetings based on risk assessment, through single sign-on, with the ability to apply multifactor authentication integrated into the Hub or by an external provider. VMware Carbon Black integrates with Workspace ONE to help stop malware, rensomware and non-malware attacks, automatically prevents online and offline attacks, blocks new and never-before-seen attacks that other solutions may miss. The VMware SASE platform enables customers to better protect the Zoom environment by combining secure access, web security, and preventing threats into a single service on the cloud. For organizations that use a virtual desktop infrastructure to improve data protection and extend the life of older devices, VMware Horizon offers an optimization package for Zoom.
