    can a Windows 11 VM be fully encrypted with VeraCrypt (system partition)? I want it to prompt for the password immediately after starting the VM (no container). How good is encryption via Parallel Desktop? Is the similarity good and secure like VeraCrypt?

    Many thanks
    Sorry for the bad english!

    The Windows 11 virtual machine can be encrypted using VeraCrypt on Intel-based mac.
    An encryption module is provided by Parallels and is built into the Parallels Desktop. This module uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with 128 bits key length, which is sufficiently strong and fast encryption algorithm.
    If, however, you would like to use your own (or third-party) encryption module, the Parallels Virtualization SDK provides an API that allows to custom-built an encryption plug-in and then use it instead of the built-in one.
    Kindly refer to this article for more info:
