Identity Service Engine

ISE implementation

Internal groups need to be immersed in product rather than having it handed off to them from the vendor.

Identity Service Engine

Implementation is not the easiest.

There are a lot of challenges during the implementation. The tech is great, the idea is awesome, but when it comes to reality, there are a lot of challenges! There was actually a bug in the switch code that was found during the implementation and we had to upgrade the entire infrastructure. Vendor support is decent and willing to work with us.

Identity Service Engine

Very complex setup and maintenance

Overall with the 3rd party integrator things went well. Took longer than expected to impliment. Cisco support can sometimes be lacking depending on who you are working with.

Cisco ISE is a known leader, but for the advanced features you need more upgrades

The product does the basic request, netwotk access control. But the complication comes in the amount of diverse endpoints, and patch management. We had to upgrade our UCCX environment to support PLUS licensing for profile policy management. We also had to upgrade our AnyConnect version to 4.3, which then required us to upgrade out Cisco ASA firewalls to 9.3.6. The sheer amount of Cisco interconnectivity and dependenices on IOS versions made the configuration and deployment more complicated and lenghty.

Implementation is still easy on a complex product.

Implementation is still easy on a complex product. It was able to support and integrate with current infrastructure. Ability to provide guest WiFi access to the users and having security controls in place. Cisco support was good.

Identity Service Engine

ISE - great product, but requires good reporting

For each site, the NAC/ISE report will be used to identify the list of devices listened to but which require remediation - remediation is either a CERT that gets pushed to the device (OR) whitelisting the device if its a headless device.

Identity Service Engine

Immaturity of product but lack of options forces a bad decision.

Product is not mature for a complex environment.

Identity Service Engine

Plan, Plan, and Plan Again

The product worked as expected without any issues. The systems integrated with minimal impact to our users. Cisco Support was superb and always willing to help with any road blocks that were found with the product itself.

Identity Service Engine

Implementation is easy if you have a good deployment plan and take iterative steps.

Slow to deliver promised functionality. Requires numerous component upgrades to full integrate and utilize the tools capabilities.
