    Hi there,

    I am a security analyst and I have just activated my trial for parallel to see if it would be a suitable option as a sandbox environment for myself and colleagues. The purpose of this sandbox would be to open phishing URLs and suspected malware files for analysis.

    For this reason we would use the isolate from host options and ensure any sharing is turned off. I have seen in other VM solutions one-way clipboard sharing is possible. IE copying a link on host computer and pasting into VM but not able to copy from VM to host.

    I don't see any features for this at present within the options and cannot see reference to this in the KBAs or the forum (apologies if I have missed something).

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Cheers,
    Luke

    I'd like to extend this suggestion also to one-way file drop, IE drop a potentially malicious file onto the VM without giving the VM access to host files.
