Yes, GateKeeper Proximity works with VMs, but depends on how the VMs are being run.
VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) is when desktop environments are hosted on a central server.
If the VDI environment is a Windows Terminal Server, and users are logging in to it from a GateKeeper-enabled computer or thin client, then the GateKeeper Remote app can be installed on the terminal server to provide user information, connection/disconnection of the terminal session, and access to the user's web credential on the terminal session. Some key elements for GateKeeper authentication to work in VDI environments are:
1. A Windows Terminal Server to host the virtual sessions.
2. The local computer and the terminal server are on the same network.
3. The local computer is accessed using GateKeeper.
4. The remote session is accessed via GateKeeper after logging on to the local computer.
5. GateKeeper Client app installed on the local computer and the GateKeeper Remote app installed on the terminal server.
6. GateKeeper user profile has passwords for local computer login and remote access login.
