VMware Fusion 4 adds the AES 128-bit encryption standard to the product so that users can encrypt and protect information inside of individual virtual machines. Both disk and memory information is encrypted to provide a higher level of protection. It’s a bit disappointing that only AES-128 is supported but this is far better than having no encryption at all.

To encrypt a virtual machine in Fusion:

1. Shut down the virtual machine that you’d like to encrypt.
2. Open the virtual machine settings (Virtual Machine > Settings).
3. Click the Encryption option.
4. Change the Encryption entry to the ON position.
5. When prompted, enter a password that you will use to protect the contents of the virtual machine.
6. Click the OK button when you’re done.
