Identity Services Engine (ISE) - 101 WebUI and Basic Policy Configuration Overview

25 Launches
Solution Overview

Network Access Control (NAC)

The purpose behind NAC technology is to enforce network authentication and authorization before allowing access on to a network.  By doing this, security controls are enhanced and provide visibility into connecting users and devices, this solves “who is on my network.” Organizations can leverage the visibility to perform posturing of an endpoint, validate certain criteria is met before allowing that device to connect to the corporate network. Taking NAC a step forward, it is a key element to building and applying software defined segmentation, which can leverage dynamic virtual local area networks (dVLANs), dynamic access control lists (dACLs), or proprietary mechanisms like security tagging.

Goals & Objectives

The goals of this lab are to give the target audience a guided visual walk through of the the ISE WebUI. Additionally WWT will attempt to provide some basic context and understanding regarding the features and configuration examples covered. Finally it is our hope that the target audience will come away with an understanding of the basic policy constructs and configuration involved with the ISE solution.
