FlexNet Technology Solutions Limited have just completed a complex Cisco ISE solution for a large corporate client based in London to provide wireless access for Corporate, Mobile, Bring Your Own Device and Guest Access.
ISE for BYOD
The BYOD solution identifies, on-boards, and enforces secure access for virtually any mobile device. The profiler identifies the latest mobile devices and enforces device security through integration with Cisco partner MDM solutions.
ISE for Guest Access
Authorised workers, or Sponsors, can grant guests internet access on any wired or wireless company network without posing a threat to security. Access is controlled by security policy, which includes automated guest lifecycle management.
ISE for Secure Access
Secure access control is available for virtually every endpoint on the network. ISE is continually updated with new BYOD mobile device profiles and prevalent endpoints – so you have extensive visibility.
Security was paramount to the design but simplicity and ease of management was also, which as we all know do not typically go hand-in-hand. FlexNet TS were able to utilise the power of Cisco ISE’s policy sets to define and create simple, yet secure policies to on-board any device over 802.1x EAP-TLS.
Contact us if you are thinking of deploying Cisco ISE for a wired or wireless infrastructure and we’ll be happy to assist you.
