ISE is central i our design for user and machine authentication and log of user activity. We also use ISE for posture to ensure healthy machines before granting access. Also the TACACS feature is used to ensure admin access happens in a controlled way.

Pros

Cons

  • Posture conditions
  • GUI implementation
  • Backup/Restore
  • Security
  • End user support
  • Easy administration
ISE stacks well up against other products in our portfolio with protocols like RADIUS, TACACS and REST APIs.
ISE is in many ways good for integration with both other Cisco products (switches, firewalls, WLAN controllers) and products from other vendors. Even with cloud services like Azure AD ISE integrates very well.
