    Why Take SISE Training?

    Security Needs: In today's network environments, security is paramount. Cisco ISE offers a comprehensive solution that provides not only access control but also deep insight into the network through visibility and security intelligence. Understanding how to implement and configure ISE is crucial for protecting network resources against unauthorized access and threats.

    Compliance and Policy Enforcement: Organizations are under increasing pressure to comply with regulatory standards and corporate policies. Cisco ISE helps enforce security policies and provides reporting capabilities to meet compliance requirements.

    Integration and Automation: With the growing complexity of networks, the ability to integrate security solutions and automate security tasks is essential. Cisco ISE plays a central role in the security ecosystem, integrating with other Cisco and third-party solutions.


    Before attending this course, candidates should be aware of the following things:

    1. Knowledge of Network Security Principles: Basic understanding of networking and security concepts is usually required to grasp the advanced topics covered in the SISE course.
    2. Familiarity with Cisco IOS Software: Experience with Cisco IOS or IOS XE and the command-line interface (CLI) is helpful, as well as CISCO AnyConnect, as the course is likely to cover configurations that involve Cisco networking equipment.
    3. Understanding of Basic 802.1X: An understanding of 802.1X protocol basics is beneficial since ISE heavily relies on this for network access control.
    4. Familiarity with the Cisco IOS® Software Command-Line Interface (CLI)
    5. Familiarity with Microsoft Windows Operating Systems
