Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE)

Introduction

Compliance: Enables effective corporate governance by creating consistent policy across an infrastructure.

Traditional corporate network boundaries and siloed


services are a thing of the past. Todays networks must
accommodate an ever-growing array of consumer IT
devices while providing user-centric policy and enabling
global collaboration. The Cisco TrustSec architecture
addresses this shift by using identity-based access
policies to tell you who and what is connecting to your
network, allowing IT to enable appropriate services
without sacrificing control.

Efficiency: Helps increase IT and network staff productivity by automating traditionally labor-intensive tasks and
streamlining service delivery.

The first release of ISE focuses on the pervasive service


enablement of TrustSec for Borderless Networks.
ISE delivers all the necessary services required by
enterprise networks - AAA, profiling, posture and guest
management - in a single appliance platform. In the
future, the same ISE platform can be used to propagate
consistent service policies throughout the borderless
network, from any end point to the video delivery
optimization, branch service personalization, and data
center server and service agility.
As part of the Cisco TrustSec solution and Ciscos
SecureX architecture for Borderless Networks, the
Cisco Identity Service Engine provides a centralized
policy engine for business relevant policy definition
and enforcement. ISE complements global contextual
information offered by Cisco Security Intelligence
Operations (SIO) with localized context awareness for
effective access policy enforcement.

Overview
Security: Secures your network by providing real-time
visibility into and control over all users and devices on
your network.

Solution Highlights
Business-relevant policies: Enables centralized, coordinated policy creation and consistent policy enforcement
across the entire corporate infrastructure, from head office to branch office.

At-A-Glance

Systemwide operational visibility: Discovers, assesses, and monitors users and endpoints and employs advanced
troubleshooting capabilities to give IT teams complete visibility into who and what is on the corporate network.
Context-aware enforcement: Gathers information from users, devices, infrastructure, and network services to
enable organizations to enforce contextual-based business policies across the network. Cisco Identity Services
Engine acts as the single source of truth for contextually rich identity attributes, including connection status, user
and device identity, location, time, and endpoint health.
Flexible services architecture: Combines AAA, posture, profiling, and guest management capabilities into a single
appliance platform. Cisco Identity Services Engine can be deployed across the enterprise infrastructure, applying
the appropriate services supporting 802.1x wired, wireless, and VPN networks.

Deployment Components
The Identity Services Engine is part of an infrastructure-based Cisco TrustSec deployment using Cisco network
devices to extend access enforcement throughout a network. Additional deployment components include Cisco
NAC Agent and Cisco AnyConnect (or a 802.1x supplicant) on the endpoint; Cisco Catalyst switches and Cisco
wireless LAN controllers acting as policy enforcement points for the LAN; and Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances for
secure remote access. Cisco Identity Services Engine also integrates with directory services such as Microsoft Active
Directory and Sun ONE Directory Server as policy information points.

The Base license is intended for organizations


that want to authenticate and authorize users and
devices on their network (wired, wireless & vpn). It
includes AAA services, guest lifecycle management,
compliance reporting, and end-to-end monitoring and
troubleshooting.
The Advanced license expands upon the BASE and
enables organizations to make policy decisions based
on user and device compliance. Advanced license
features include device profiling, posture services,
and security group access enforcement capabilities
across the entire network (wired, wireless & vpn).
