Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Have you had the Mac apart at any time? Any chance the bluetooth card has come loose or the antenna wire disconnected?
