FAQs

Lumen SASE offers the convergence of networking and security functions in a cloud-first unified solution with a focus on the digital experience and built on the world-class Lumen Platform.

The VMware SASE Platform™ is the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform that converges industry-leading cloud networking and cloud security to deliver flexibility, agility, security and scale for enterprises of all sizes. The VMware SASE Platform is offered as a Service, helping offload IT staff from deploying and maintaining WAN/security and designed to save enterprises operational costs.

There are four components of the VMware SASE Platform:

  • VMware SD-WAN™ 
  • VMware Secure Access™
  • VMware Cloud Web Security
  • VMware Firewall as a Service (FWaaS)

SD-WAN, Secure Access and Cloud Web Security are available with our initial offering. FWaaS availability is targeted for late 2022. Cloud Web Security inspects traffic going to the web/SaaS cloud while FWaaS is deployed to inspect traffic going to the Enterprise Data Center.

VMware runs SASE services inside its own worldwide points of presence (POP). All component services will run inside the VMware SASE POP, including SD-WAN, VMware Secure Access, VMware Cloud Web Security and VMware FWaaS.

In order to take full advantage of the VMware SASE Platform, customers should deploy multiple SASE services.

VMware Cloud Web Security and VMware FWaaS will be managed by VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator on day one of service. VMware Secure Access, Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) and VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator will be used separately initially, with SSO based cross-launch and other workflow on the integration roadmap.

VMware SASE services can be ordered using the Lumen SASE Solutions Marketplace and Lumen SASE Manager experience. Services can always be purchased by contacting our Lumen sales team.

Once user traffic optimized with VMware SD-WAN arrives at the POP, additional services from other SASE services can be applied to that traffic for security checks.

Traffic can come into the VMware SASE POP in two ways: through VMware SD-WAN using a VMware SD-WAN Edge or through VMware Secure Access for remote/mobile users. Once the traffic is inside the POP, it can be sent to VMware Cloud Web Security or VMware FWaaS for further inspection.

The VMware Secure Access solution provides remote access users consistent, optimal and secure cloud application access through a network of worldwide managed service nodes. The solution brings the best of both VMware SD-WAN and VMware Workspace ONE solutions into a single, cloud-hosted offer that helps ensure a consistent application experience and verified access to corporate applications as users work at the office and remotely.

VMware Secure Access is comprised of:

  • VMware-hosted Workspace ONE Tunnel Service, stateful firewall and traffic steering, deployed in multi-region VMware SASE POPs 
  • Client options (see additional question)

Users have multiple options:

Managed client: Workspace ONE is used as a mobile device management (MDM) to manage endpoints such as laptops, smartphones and tablets in an enterprise. The Workspace ONE client is used to connect to the VMware SASE POP.

Stand-alone: Third-party MDM can be optionally used to install VMware Workspace ONE VPN client to the devices, or the endpoint can download and install this VPN client directly. The Workspace ONE VPN client can then connect to the VMware SASE POP.

Workspace ONE can be used behind a VMware SD-WAN Edge. Depending on the Enterprise policy, Workspace ONE can be configured to pause the tunnel to the VMware SASE POP while the client is on the enterprise network; traffic will be sent over the tunnel between the Edge and the POP.

Cloud Web Security is offered using the centralized portal for managing security and networking policies. This is made possible using the VMware SD-WAN Orchestrator. For example, security policy can be configured in the Orchestrator UI and applied to the network segment as a single workflow. This approach eliminates any mismatch between security and networking policies. NetOps, SecOps, CSO, CIO and compliance teams can get common view of network performance and security posture.

The introduction of VMware Cloud Web Security will not require any hardware upgrades to existing VMware SD-WAN Edge deployments.

VMware Cloud Web Security will include the following functionalities that will be delivered in phases:

  • Secure web gateway (SWG): URL filtering, advanced antimalware with file hash check, cloud sand box, SSL inspection 
  • Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) visibility and control
  • Data loss prevention (DLP) visibility and control
  • Remote browser isolation (RBI)
