Cisco ISE (Identity Services Engine)

Cisco ISE (Identity Services Engine) has become an integral security solution. The platform encompasses access control across wired, wireless and VPN networks.

In this course we’ll be covering all the required components required to implement and administrate the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) platform.
In order to provide up to date configuration practices, this course will be based on ISE 3.0.

The Cisco ISE platform provides enterprises with a number of security benefits. These can be broken down to:

  • Device administration.
  • Access control (AAA, MAB, 802.1x).
  • Guest access management.
  • Secure access (profiling, posture compliance).
  • Network visibility.

As we proceed through the course, we’ll break down each of the configuration items down. From here, we’ll go through the required configuration step-by-step.
