I haven't thought about the Alt+Tab behaviour as a (security) feature - thank 
you for the interesting view.
I have chosen to come up with a workarround as solution to switch my Apps in my 
virtual desktop window:

1) Download Autohotkey in the virtual desktop

2) Create a my-autohotkey.ahk configuration file with the following entries:

LAlt & w::AltTab
LAlt & q::ShiftAltTab

3) run Autohotkey with the above configuration

I am now able to switch windows back & forward using Alt + Q and Alt + W, which 
is good enough.
