Exec: How SDN, SD-WAN, security fit in VMware's strategy
It has been just 10 months since Tom Gillis became VMware's senior vice president and general manager of its networking and security business, and in that time he has overseen some major changes in the company’s core products.Most recent is a milestone release of the company’s NSX-T Data Center software, making it VMware’s primary networking platform for organizations looking to support multivendor cloud-native applications, bare-metal workloads as well as the growing hybrid and multi-cloud worlds. Gillis’s group also rolled out a new firewall – the Service-defined Firewall—VMware says protects enterprise applications inside data centers or clouds. There have been other key additions, too, including an expanded relationship with AT&T around its SD-WAN offering. Leaning on his previous executive experiences – general manager of Cisco's security technology business, CEO of Bracket Computing, vice president of marketing at IronPort Systems and others – Gillis is tasked with keeping VMware squarely in front of cloud, security and enterprise computing.
