The short qustion is:

Can this be done by OnGuard?

 

Is there documentation which explain te possibilitys with VM on OnGuard cleints?

OnGuard can inform the user to stop/shutdown the VM or it can actually shut it down on its own without user interaction. (This is with the persistent agent)

Re: OnGuard limit VM clients a

Thanks for the prompt answer!
What the customer like to achieve is the following:
Users must run VMs for their work.The customer like to be able to recognize whether the VM is launched with a VM and if the trusted VM is running the virusscanner. So, can OnGuard recognize this situation and detect when the user switched from one trusted VM to another non-trusted VM.
From your answer I suggest this should be able, but I like to know if it will cover the situation above. Can you confirm or point me out to the information where I find what possibilities we can have within VM environments.

Thanks a lot in advance again!

It cannot detect a specific VM, only that VMs are running or not running.
