Compliance Frameworks


A VMware virtual machine is a software-based emulation of a physical computer. Virtual machines use dedicated GPUs for modern graphic rendering through APIs like OpenGL and DirectX. Disabling hardware-based 3D acceleration when unnecessary prevents instability and security risks like memory corruption, denial of service, and remote code execution.
