Learn to install, configure and deploy ISE to secure identity-based networks! SISE is a 5-day instructor-led course is an intensive experience with enhanced hands-on labs that cover all facets of Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) version 2.4. The training provides learners with the knowledge and skills to enforce security compliance for wired and wireless endpoints and enhance infrastructure security using the Cisco ISE. In this course, you will learn about the Cisco ISE, a next-generation identity and access control policy platform that provides a single policy plane across the entire organization. The ISE combines multiple services including authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) using 802.1x, MAB, web authentication, posture, profiling, device on-boarding, guest services, and VPN access into a single context-aware identity-based platform. Note: participants considering this course should have familiarity with Cisco IOS CLI, Cisco ASA, Cisco VPN clients and 802.1x network authentication protocol. This course will enable you to:

  • Configure fundamental elements of ISE
  • Secure identity-based networks using 802.1X for both wired and wireless clients using Windows 10 and Apple iPad endpoints
  • Integrate the Cisco Virtual Wireless LAN Controller (vWLC) with advanced ISE features
  • Use the following advanced features of Cisco ISE:
    • Active Directory Integration
    • Policy Sets
    • EasyConnect
    • EAP-FAST with EAP Chaining
    • BYOD
    • AnyConnect 4.x Posture Module for LAN and VPN compliance
    • TACACS+ Device Management
    • TrustSec Security Group Access
