CONSOLIDATING SEVERAL CLIENTS ON A SINGLE ISERIES | by Carol Woodbury

Dear Carol,

Our vendor is looking to consolidate several clients on a single machine. They have indicated they will achieve this by putting each client into a separate subsystem. From an application and network perspective, would this approach provide adequate security and privacy?
