Virtual Computer provides government grade AES 256 full disk encryption; a type 1 hypervisor that protects
against key loggers and screen scrapers; and remote lock, wipe, and kill capabilities. Virtual Computer can also set
up separate VMs for corporate and personal use on a single machine; corporate use and personal use are isolated
from each other. IT professionals can fully control the corporate instance, even locking down USB ports, while
giving users more flexibility on their personal VM.
VMware View enables IT to increase its level of control over distributed PC computing environments by
centralizing the components into the data center. Applications and data no longer reside locally on machines
that can be lost or stolen. Users are provided greater levels of access because the same VM can be accessed
via a multitude of devices, both Microsoft Windows* based and non Windows based, thus improving their user
experience. For users deployed via View Client with Local Mode, the virtual desktop is encrypted, and IT is able to
wrap the virtual desktop with security policies before it is deployed locally for greater protection.
The Mirage solution leverages encryption on the server side to protect all user and end point data that is stored.
It also allows for the usage of Secure Sockets Layer for communication between the end points and the server.
The security functionality is transparent to the end user.
