Maintaining network security and operational efficiency today requires a new technology that can accurately identify every user and device, provision and secure devices, help get them on the network, and use policy to control where they can go from any access media: wired, wireless, or VPN.
To satisfy this need, EXD proposes the Cisco® Identity Services Engine (ISE), an all-in-one enterprise policy control for comprehensive wired, wireless, and VPN access control; more productive workers; and lower OpEx. It features rigorous identification technologies that can create contextual identities, such as user, device, or location. This solution applies policies enforced at the point of access, which enforces and validates security compliance. Workers can easily onboard, secure their devices, and obtain access to their services from any location. It can help reduce costs by making security operations easy and more efficient, using the existing network infrastructure to enforce policy and extend value by supporting next-generation TrustSec networking. The proposed solution provides clients many benefits, including:
