Control and Secure Applications and Data

Fusion 6 Professional enables IT professionals to control and secure corporate applications and data in a variety of fundamental ways. IT administrators can create and control policies around your virtual machines and deliver applications to end-users in a simplified "restricted" virtual machine container. Fusion 6 Professional also allows restricting access to certain virtual machine settings and can even prevent users' from connecting USB devices to restricted virtual machines. This ensures users are not able to tamper with corporate images. Additionally, virtual machines can be encrypted and password-protected to provide yet another layer of protection.

Easy and Reliable Deployment

Fusion 6 Professional provides an easy, reliable, and proven way to allow company employees to run the Windows programs they need on the Macs they want. Use existing Windows management tools to deploy Windows and Windows applications, apply patches, and enable conformance to policy. Fusion 6 Professional comes with IT administration tools to help you deploy VMware Fusion® using Apple or a third-party Mac management solution like JAMF’s Casper Suite. Further reduce the cost of supporting Windows desktop using single virtual machine mode which limits user access to the Virtual Machine library, the ability to create new virtual machines or migrate PCs and reduces menu options.

With Fusion 6 Professional, you can run demanding applications like AutoCAD or SolidWorks at incredible speeds and with Retina display support, graphics-intensive applications will look as good as they behave.

And, because Fusion 6 Professional displays the name of each virtual machine when in full screen mode, power users will be able to readily identify the virtual machine that’s being displayed.
