FDE on virtual machine [In progress]

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to full disk encrypt a VM? I'm thinking no, but one of the administrators wanted me to look into it.

Hi,

 

Please clarify what does it mean exactly to encrypt a VM? What product version is used?

 

Thank You!

We could use 10.1MR1 or Light Agent 3. I think they are specifically wanting to encrypt health information that needs to be protected, and they need to do more than file level.

It should be possible to do a full disk encryption on a virtual machine. Are you experiencing any issues with applying full disk encryption in this case?

 

Thank You!

We wanted to check before attempting it. So it's something that should be possible, but is it a supported situation?

I have used KES10 to FDE a Windows VM. The only issue is that it will take up the entire provisioned space - even if thin provisioned.

 

But that is just my 2 cents. I would still wait for Nikolay to provide a complete answer.

Hello!

Please kindly clarify, which type of VM are you planning to use? We expect no issues in FDE on most popular hypervizors.

Thank you!
