Course Description

This course shows participants how to deploy and use Cisco® Identity Services Engine (ISE), an identity and access control policy platform that simplifies the delivery of consistent, highly secure access control across wired, wireless, and VPN connections. It provides the knowledge and skills to implement and use Cisco ISE, including policy enforcement, profiling services, web authentication and guest access services, BYOD, endpoint compliance services, and TACACS+ device administration. Through expert instruction and hands-on practice, participants will learn how to use Cisco ISE to gain visibility into what is happening in any network, streamline security policy management, and contribute to operational efficiency.
