Recently VMware released a new version of VMware Workstation. This new version offers some new functionality and features and one such feature is the ability to Encrypt and Restrict virtual machines within Workstation 9.x.
Here we have two new short videos which demonstrate how to encrypt virtual machines in Workstation 9.x and also how to restrict virtual machines in Workstation 9.x.
This first video will focus on Encrypting virtual machines in Workstation 9.x.
The second video will focus on Restricting virtual machines in Workstation 9.x. Click here for more details.
Encrypting a virtual machine secures it from unauthorized use. To decrypt a virtual machine, users must enter the correct encryption password.
When you encrypt a virtual machine, Workstation prompts you for a password. After the virtual machine is encrypted, you must enter this password to open the virtual machine or to remove encryption from it. Workstation displays the encrypted virtual machine with a lock icon until you enter the password to open the virtual machine.
