If you are looking for a solution that can provide secure and context-based access to your network, enforce your policies, and give you visibility and control over your endpoints and devices, then you might want to consider Cisco ISE (Identity Services Engine).


This blog will unravel the intricacies of Cisco ISE, shedding light on its pivotal role in ensuring robust security. Additionally, we'll explore how collaborating with industry pacesetters such as Ctelecoms can amplify the implementation and management of this formidable security solution.


Cisco ISE is a system that acts as a shared policy engine that can control and manage endpoints and network devices for enterprises. It offers many benefits, such as:

- Providing secure and context-based access to your business resources according to your company policies.

Cisco ISE uses comprehensive identity for context, which includes attributes such as user, time, device, device posture, location, threat, vulnerability, and access type. This identity can be used to enforce a secure access policy that matches the business role of the identity. IT administrators can apply granular controls on who, what, when, where, and how endpoints are allowed to access the network. Cisco ISE uses multiple mechanisms to enforce the policy, including Cisco Trust Security Group Tagging.

- Simplifying network visibility through a simple, flexible, and easy-to-consume interface.

Cisco ISE stores a detailed history of the attributes for all endpoints that connect to the network as well as the users (including types such as guests, employees, contractors) on the network, down to the application details and firewall status of the endpoint. All this information feeds into all the endpoints and the devices they connect to; providing the visibility with the context needed to ensure device compliance.

- Reducing threats: Cisco ISE doesn’t just block or prevent the threat from accessing. It turns the network into a defender, and shut down access, and remove the endpoint from the network entirely. This level of protection can be achieved automatically with integration through pxGrid to give passive security intelligence and analytics solutions the arm they need to become an active arm of defense.
