Likelihood to Recommend

Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE)

Overall, management is not terrible if you have a stable network that is not overly complex. If you don't, this product will take considerable time to plan for an effective solution. I will say support is not very helpful, so if you need assistance after the initial sales rep assisted setup, good luck and be prepared to spend hours on the phone.

Pros

Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE)

  • Manage high-privilege access to communications equipment. It allows to be granular in the permissions, to have it integrated with the LDAP users and, most importantly, to audit what tasks each user performed.
  • Profile users and devices and assign privileges and access levels based on that combination. It greatly improves the user experience, since it does not depend on the network it is in, but on the access levels it has depending on the device. It also allows self-managed guest access with approval flow, which is essential for our business.
  • It has also allowed us to automate actions based on findings from StealWatch, Umbrella, AMP, etc.

For us the solution is very easily useable on its own. Perhaps that has to do because we started using ISE in the 1.2 days and have seen it grow during the years. Policy creation, etc. is all very visible and thus easy to use. Deployment of multiple nodes is also incredibly easy and flexible. You can easily add or remove nodes as you wish.

Cisco support is second to none, both in terms of how you access support but also the knowledge of the individual support teams. If you focus on one technology and provide "manufacturer support" then you can rest assured that you are accessing Cisco's top individuals.I feel like this is a USP for Cisco support.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE)

Cisco ISE is way ahead of other products when it comes to Network Access Control technology. With its granularity level controls and zero trust architecture, we can leverage its extensive policy enforcement to create rules based upon users/processes/machines. It gives so much flexibility to the IT Network team and a holistic view of all the assets connected in the infra.

Return on Investment

Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE)

  • Cisco ISE is fairly expensive, but I feel that the time it saves our team is well worth it.
  • We have been able to roll this our to all of our teams, and they can each manage their own device and it is really convenient to have each team mange their own devices
  • Once it is deployed and configured, it seems like there isn't much upkeep, so we don't have to hire someone to manage it we do it by committee.

Flowmon ADS

  • Early detection of cyber security events and incidents.
  • Processing a large number of network flows on input (which means more than 60K flows per second)
  • Parameterization of detection methods.
  • The possibility to decide on the false-positive rate within the output of each method.
