Cisco Identity Services Engine Deployment and Managed Services
You can’t secure what you can’t control, and you can’t control what you can’t see.
According to Cisco’s 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report, “40% of the dynamic networks, endpoints, and cloud infrastructure in enterprises is leading to significant infrastructure blind spots and lack of real-time awareness for security teams.” With these many gaps, companies are wide open to costly breaches.
In the age of BYOD and IoT connecting organizations, employees and guests expect you to provide effective connectivity to your network, but constrained IT departments lack the ability to monitor this expanding attack surface. Without clear visibility into network traffic, your organization is vulnerable to a multitude of security threats.
It’s not enough to be reactive. Organizations need to become proactive in their security monitoring and defense—and many need help to do it.
Enable Your Team to Get Ahead of Threats
Your IT team needs control of and comprehensive visibility into your network traffic. With this increased control, your IT team can identify and mitigate risks before they become threats. Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) provides highly secure network access to users and devices at a granular level through a centralized management portal, enabling your IT team to keep track of permissions and activity at a glance.
Cisco ISE provides you with a holistic approach to network access security. This technology grants your organization:
Highly Secure Context-Based Access
Streamlined Network Visibility
Extensive Policy Enforcement
Robust Guest Experiences
Accelerated Secure BYOD Onboarding
Automated Device-Compliance Checks
Central Network Device Management
With Cisco ISE, your IT administrators can differentiate network access between full-time employees, contractors, and guests in one simple interface. With its intelligent profiling capabilities, Cisco ISE also delivers superior visibility into who and what is accessing your network resources.
Unfortunately, with so many other strategic initiatives in place, organizations struggle to find the bandwidth and expertise to fully utilize their cybersecurity solutions like Cisco ISE.
Redefine Proactive with Cisco ISE’s Integrated Solutions
In addition to its native security features, Cisco ISE comes integrated with:
Cisco DNA Center
Cisco DNA Center is the foundational controller and analytics platform at the core of Cisco’s intent-based network. The DNA Center enables your IT team to quickly implement guest and BYOD policies across your network, as well as provides insight into your network to optimize performance.
This integration provides software-defined segmentation. With Cisco TrustSec, your IT team can automate security enforcement within the network that decreases detection time and increases threat mitigation. The policies set within Cisco TrustSec give users consistent access as resources move across domains.
Cisco Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid)
Cisco ISE’s pxGrid technology shares rich contextual data with over 50 technology partners, granting unprecedented data-sharing on threats and accelerating your IT team’s ability to identify and remediate security threats across your extended network. Within Cisco ISE’s access control center, your organization is ideally positioned to deliver services more securely, remain compliant, and streamline your operations.
Managing Cisco ISE with Limited Resources
With your already lean IT team tasked with a growing list of projects and goals, proactive monitoring often falls off the list. Technology like Cisco ISE is only as effective as its management and the expertise behind it.
Hiring new engineers with the prerequisite experience is costly and often outside of the IT operational budget. Tasking current IT resources that might not have the product knowledge or the bandwidth to effectively implement and run the centralized access hub comes with its own challenges and inefficiencies.
