"Unified Identity Service. "

What do you like best?

Cisco ISE devices allow identity managers many facilities when making several authentication mechanisms interoperable, such as AAA + (Radius and Tacacs), Directory Services (Active Directory and LDAP). This interoperability allows a fast, centralized and easy deployment of an identity management for acces to a large number of devices and network services. It is easy to use and fully scalable

What do you dislike?

The recommended use of an ISE device must be in an enterprise environment beacuse the license are expensive. For small companies in a high investment. And it is unlikely that they will take advantage of all their functionalities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For perimeter security that is highly scalable, I recommend using the benefits of this device in high availability. The administration tool is quite robust and intuitive, it allows you to perform updates and configurations deployments quickly and in a reliable way. The implementation of NAD profiles allows for them to be imported and exported so they can be shared. ISE 2.0 ships with a slew of pre-built profiles for many network devices, including Aruba, Alcatel, Brocade, and more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In several costumer, this The great customization possibilities makes the solution give us features like:

- Customize the Guests Profiles, this include locations with SSID association. The reporting of this type of access in the network for any connection type (Wireless, wired or vpn).

- For final users (endpoints) It grants the facility to take immediate actions in a simple way to apply corrections in them. They can be redirects from Url. Put and remove in quarantine, until turn off endpoints that are compromised..

"Great Out Of The Box "

What do you like best?

The product worked as expected without any issues. The systems integrated with minimal impact to our users. Cisco Support was superb and always willing to help with any roadblocks that were found with the product itself. The logging is very clear. Whenever users say they can't authenticate, the reason is immediatly listed in the logging dashboard. The policy configuration can also be done in any way you like. It's easy to structure and has quite a lot of predefined objects/actions.

What do you dislike?

Requires 3rd party implementation initially and also updates tend to introduce other bugs and aren't always as useful as they would seem. Automatic profiling could be improved more. Licensing model--too granular and greedy. MDM integration is a separate cost per user, etc., and is unreasonably expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a good understanding of the amount of users you're willing to authenticate. Perhaps look into cheaper solutions, but it may be hard to find an out of the box experience similar to Cisco ISE.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Create and manage policies in order to provide network access control on both your wireless and wired network. There are multiple ways to authenticate users, whether you just want MAB-authentication, authentication by username or authentication by certificate. It's very flexible, has predefined elements and there are also valuable guides to be found.

What Network Access Control solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Does the job you need"

What do you like best?

I love the endpoints identity page in the software - it's one of the most used features for me.

What do you dislike?

I'm not a huge fan about the new way to navigate the software and general set-up they use for getting around the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a shot! It'll seriously handle all the things you could ever want an ISE to do, especially the ability to customize profiles - it's a game changer. Even though I am not the biggest fan about the new navigation framework they have for this, it's just a learning curve. I'm not against it, I just need a little more time to get used to it and figure it all out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Network device profiles are something that really makes a difference because it gives you the option to customize the settings for network devices and the way it does change of authorizations, and some other cool features.

"Find all the hosts in your network that you never knew were there"

What do you like best?

I am finding MANY devices, in both variety and host count, that I never realized were there before.

I can view policies without that policy getting corrupted, which is a very real danger with ACS.

What do you dislike?

There is a learning curve and the current official training material is not up to date.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Plan, plan, plan.

Have use cases well defined, be ready to upgrade all switch firmware, have a lab environment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Identification of endpoints.

Still in deployment, so still working on realizing further benefits.

It isn't ACS.

Cisco ISE now competes with any other product in the space because of its centralized and unified highly secure access control with ISE. Cisco's support was also top notch. When we have questions they are always available and willing to help us!

The learning curve is steep and the initial setup is complex and requires a 3rd party company.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Fully vet the solution before you jump in. The implementation process can be overwhelming if you do not take that step first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are still working on deploying this tool.
