VMware Secure Access


VMware is streamlining and simplifying its product offering in order to deliver more value to its customers.  As part of this, VMware is announcing End of Availability (EOA) for VMware Secure Access starting January 31st, 2024, with End-of-Life (EOL) starting August 31st, 2024.


For customers who are looking at Secure Access as a remote access solution, VMware can provide two options: 

  1. VMware VeloCloud SD-Access (formerly branded as VMware SD-WAN Client) is a replacement solution for customers who are looking for a remote access solution for remote workers that is based on the principles of ZTNA. 
  2. VMware Workspace ONE Tunnel is part of the Workspace ONE portfolio for endpoint security and zero trust access. 

For existing VMware Secure Access customers, VMware is providing two options:

  1. If a customer wishes to continue to use the Workspace ONE Tunnel solution that powers Secure Access, they have the option to migrate from Secure Access to a customer-hosted Unified Access Gateway (UAG). The Tunnel solution, including both the client application and the Unified Access Gateway, is available via Workspace ONE licensing.  
  2. If the customer chooses to migrate existing Secure Access deployment to VeloCloud SD-Access, existing entitlement for VMware Secure Access can be converted to VeloCloud SD-Access for the remainder of the term at no additional cost, plus a complementary extension on your subscription. VMware VeloCloud SD-Access continues the integration of remote users into the SASE infrastructure. Your VMware sales professionals can also discuss other options and arrangements.

For additional details regarding this end of availability and the available options listed above, please reach out to your VMware Account team or Sales Representative.
