VS 8.5/8.7 Virtual Machine Protection. Who is using this?

Hi all

McAfee 8.5 and 8.7 have new access protection policies for protecting aspects of virutal machine software. by default, they are set on Report only.

They are

Prevent Termination of VMWare Processes
Prevent modification of VMWare Workstation files and settings
Prevent modification of VMWare Server files and settings
Prevent modification of VMWare virtual machine files

Anyone using these features? What are your experiences and percieved benefits?

I cannot imagine them being necessary unless you are in a very locked down environment. maybe virtual machines in a pci environment?

what are your thoughts
