Before you begin

If your organization needs to comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS regulations, then the use of a virtual desktop machine is not permitted in these environments.

This relates to solutions such as:

  • VMware Workstation
  • VMware Player Pro
  • VMware Fusion
  • Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Parallels Desktop for Mac
  • Virtual Box

It may well be the case that Secure Remote Worker will launch, however you will not see any applications or tools available within the secure workspace environment.


Example message.


Secure Remote Worker without any application or Browser Tab.
