Cisco ISE Consulting & Deployment


In the ever-changing industrial landscape, more and more of our customers are asking which of our solutions will help them keep their increasingly-mobile networks secure and efficient. We point them to The Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE).

A core part of what we do here at CTC Technologies.

CTC Technologies is proud to partner with Cisco to offer this unique and truly-encompassing solution that we believe will put any network security and access concerns to rest. No matter how large or mobile your workforce, ensure protection from endpoint to endpoint and know exactly what is going on in your WAN with Cisco ISE.

What is Cisco ISE?

The Cisco Identity Services Engine is a policy-based enforcement system that grants or denies network access automatically based on parameters that you can set and edit at any time.

With this identity-based system, you can centrally control any wireless and wired endpoints trying to access your network by administering policies that dictate who and what can enter and where and when they are allowed to do so.

Essentially, ISE profiles endpoint devices for any users trying to gain unauthorized access to your network. If and when it finds them, it will either completely deny or give guest access to the user based on your policy settings.

ISE is an amazingly simple, yet efficient solution that helps you keep your network safe without always having to keep your own eyes on it.  Great for mobile, large and/or intricate workforces, ISE’s top features include:

  • Central management.
  • Automated actions based on previously-dictated policies.
  • Regular database updates so that there are no gaps in visibility.
  • Taking care of BYOD devices and guest onboarding and many other day-to-day tasks.
  • Ensuring endpoint-to-endpoint security all across your network to constantly protect your sensitive data.
