About this course:
This course teaches you skills to deploy and use an identity and access control policy platform, Cisco Identity Services Engine (Cisco ISE) v2.4. With this platform you will be able to simplify the delivery of consistent, highly secure access control across wired, wireless, and VPN connections.
This course will also enable you to perform policy enforcement, profiling services, web authentication and guest access services, BYOD, endpoint compliance services, and TACACS+ device administration.
With the ability to use Cisco ISE, you can streamline security policy management, gain visibility into your network, and contribute to operational efficiency.
Upon completing this course you will be fully prepared to take the Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine (300-715 SISE) exam, passing which will lead to CCNP Security and Cisco Certified Specialist - Security Identity Management Implementation certifications.
You should be able to do the following after successfully completing the course:
- Describe third-party Network Access Devices (NADs), Cisco TrustSec®, and Easy Connect
- Describe the value of the My Devices portal and how to configure this portal
