  • 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.
  • It could be integrated with third party products.
  • The interface could be a bit more user friendly.
  • Could be integrated with social networks for guest authentication.

  • ISE is extremely good at authentication. It is easy to use and policy can be created in such a way that authentication can be secured.
  • ISE is really good for guest wireless within your organization. It's not only simple to create guest accounts but it's also simple for the end-user. The options that are available are endless.
  • ISE is great at logging. The logging aspect of ISE makes it easy to search through the logs when issues arise and find things easily which cuts down on troubleshooting time.
  • ISE could really make improvements on software updates and patches. The updates and patches typically take a very long time to install.
  • ISE could improve some of its technical documentation on how to implement certain features that ISE can offer.

  • Centrally manages all devices in one place. It's never fun to have to manage multiple systems.
  • Very solid platform. We haven't had any issues with things not working properly.
  • Has built in profiles for many devices and systems. It really makes it quick to build out.
  • Lot and lots of settings. if they could simplify the process or have a template that would make things easier.
  • No batch edit. Would be nice to change settings of multiple devices at a time.
