A computer technician creates a virtual environment. Which security measure should the technician take for the virtual machine running Windows 10, if any?

  • Each virtual machine should have antivirus software installed.
  • Because each virtual machine contains an operating system that is different from what is on the host computer, no security software is needed.
  • A hardware firewall should be placed between each virtual machine and the internet or it will be necessary to ensure that the Windows firewall is enabled on each virtual machine.
  • The virtual machine must use the same secure passwords as the host computer uses.
Answers Explanation & Hints:

Virtual machines are susceptible to the same security threats that a host computer is. All security measures that are recommended for a computer in a home or business environment should also be taken within the virtual environment.
