Course Spotlight: SISE – Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine v2.3

Global Knowledge launched SISE v2.3 – Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine v2.3 in January with the intention of teaching students about the latest version of Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE). Which begs the question… 


What is the Cisco Identity Services Engine?

As the modern network expands, so does the complexity of managing resources and disparate security solutions. Cisco ISE is a different approach to both manage and secure the evolving enterprise network.

ISE simplifies the delivery of consistent, highly-secure access control across wired, wireless and VPN connections. With far-reaching, intelligent sensor and profiling capabilities, ISE can reach deep into the network to deliver superior visibility into who and what are accessing resources.

Results of a recent Cisco case study of Georgetown University revealed the following three outcomes of ISE implementation: 

1. Provided actionable intelligence on the users and devices on the network. 
2. Minimized the risk of unsecured devices entering the network. 
3. Enabled employees the flexibility to work anywhere on any device securely.
